Bug#356402: vdradmin: creates and uses /tmp/usr, which is a rather generic dirname

Package: vdradmin
Version: 0.97-am3.4.2-3
Severity: minor

vdradmin uses /tmp/usr/... to store its template cache. This is ugly and
may even interfere with other (human or script) uses of /tmp.
Since the startup script explicitly sets an env variable called TEMPDIR,
fixing this should be easy: replace the hard "/tmp" on line 222 with a
conditional statement that prefers $ENV{TEMPDIR}.
Sorry for not attaching a patch, I have a rather ugly accent when
speaking Perl.
