Why is openswan using /var/tmp?

If it needs to use temporary files it should be using /var/run/

/var/racoon(/.*)?                       gen_context(system_u:object_r:ipsec_var_

/var/run/pluto(/.*)?                    gen_context(system_u:object_r:ipsec_var_

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

This is tested in the latest Openswan verison, and the issue does not appear
now. So I am closing this, and please reopen if you see this issue again.
Thanks for reporting the issue.
