Yup. If you haven't set TMPDIR in your script, do it. It's a FAQ... By

Not really, but it's non-fatal. I used to think somehow empty URLs were
getting through to the DB, but I thought I took care of that. I have a few
reliable test cases that I can use if it sticks around. However, we've
changed the database code for 3.2 and I don't expect this to be a problem

Yes. See above. :-)
