Sounds like a good idea, though it gives me the temp path for the current
logged in user in Windows.
But on my Mac Mini it gives some weird folder name that I am hoping will be
available for the session (at least 30 minutes) called:
Does that sound correct?

I was using System.Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable("TMP",
EnvironmentVariableTarget.Machine)) because I thought it would be best for
all client computers and gives me a consistent temp location for my windows
services on all computers (Win 2000 and up)

I also have a test application that is the same code but a win form.  Now I
am trying to convert both programs to work on mono on Mac OS X.  

But I will use this temp folder if a Mac computer and the other if a Windows
computer.  I wish I could use the same code though....
