Description Michael K. Johnson 1999-02-23 15:02:50 EST
mktemp manpage says that any arbitrary number of X's in
the template are OK (it talks about varying numbers and
gives no limit) and it has example code with both 4 and
6 X's in the template.  Operationally, it appears to be
limited to exactly 6.  One or the other has to be fixed
so that they agree...
