TMPDIR seems to be OK:

> echo %TMPDIR%


I'll poke around in the Perl code to see what I can find.

Rcmd check uses TMPDIR, so what exactly do you have that set to?
It does look to me as if you do not have it set correctly, but you can
debug the Perl to find out what it is doing.

It certainly works for me iff TMPDIR is set correctly.
