However, this does not have any effect, because if the script is not
called, it also seems not to write anything to the log.

Do you mean '/tmp/', rather than '/temp'?

tmp is perhaps more canonical, but what is the difference? I created
~/temp manually in the past, so the directory exists.

No problem, I was just making sure it wasn't a typo. I hadn't noticed
the '~'.
