    [ -d "$tmpdir" ] && rm -rf "$tmpdir"

My recollection is that we explicitly cd away because we don't want to
be in $tmpdir (or a subdir) when doing the rm -rf.  cd "$tmpdir/.."
Should be ok.

However, I have also never heard before of a system where / is not
readable.  I'm surprised anything works.
