Re: tmpfile callback problems.

Ben and I talked about this over AIM (gstein67, if you wonder). We resolved
the obvious issues, but it appears something a little more ugly is still
happening in there. Ben is going to debug some more tomorrow.

We figured that one out after a bit :-)

Actually, you can... look at the (misnamed) apr_portable.h header file.
There is a way to get the file descriptor out of the apr_file_t.

However, I suspect that will return the HANDLE on Windows, which will be
wrong for Neon. Need to look a bit more.

Time for that use-APR-in-Neon patch :-)
