Yeah you can't use tmp, it should be $HOME relative, wherever it is.

Probably, although I suppose an image could get "lost" thefre.

Not that bad if you only set one.

Another alternative is to save it to a visible file on the desktop, based on the name in the attachment rather than a specific name.  And change the name if it clashes.  Or something.  There was discussion elsehwere on the evolution-patches list.

FWIW David (and others), we already have 2 patches for this feature, so you may want to consider looking at something else.
