--- Additional comment from Kurt Seifried on 2013-04-30 03:19:10 EDT ---

nagios.upgrade_to_v3.sh is not in upstreams files, it's added by Red Hat and several other vendors. So splitting this bug again.

Comment 1 Kurt Seifried 2013-04-30 19:03:02 UTC
This file was first added to the Nagios RPM many years ago. We need to simply change it to:

tmp1=`mktemp /tmp/XXXXXXXX`

or equivalent
