Ahh! .... Yes this situation, yeah I find this quite annoying myself
from time to time when deleting that mc-* dir by mistake within a mc
session. I was wrong by assuming that this was a general tmp dir issue
with general creating of that dir.

I think that this stuff should be handled not in the tmp dir rather than
the user dir itself e.g.

.mc/tmp/ <--- here

Would make more sense. But I think that MC itself use the tmpdir
functioncalls to deal with that stuff.
