I will update with this patch and let you know what happens. The strange
thing is i don't see files being created in the temp directories now that
you mention it, I am wondering if the version of Linux I am running is
putting the temp directory somewhere else.

The thing that is weird is the error message says "invalid argument",
nothing about not enough space or /tmp directory not large enough, so maybe
something in the patch will help me out may just be an issue in the code.
