[R] Removal of temp files in R 1.60 with xgobi - reversable?

 From the NEWS file for R 1.60:

Each R session uses a per-session temporary directory which
	is removed at normal termination.  The directory name is given
	by the tempdir() function, and filenames returned by
	tempfile() will be within that directory.

Is there any way to maintain these temporary files?  I use R to generate output 
files that  are viewable with the xgobi package which has a 'keep' option to 
maintain temporary files, but this seems to be overridden in R itself.

It worked OK with R up to 1.51, I think.

I'd actually like to be able to specify the entire temp directory as well since 
I have to generate this directory anyway.

Cheers, Harry
