Description
The directory "/tmp" or %TEMP% on windows is hardcoded in the JVM and should be changed to look at the property java.io.tmpdir first.

Comments
EVALUATION Summary: Get java.io.tmpdir property in os::get_temp_directory() and call this instead of harcoding "/tmp". Don't assume trailing file_separator either.
