Congratulations. You just triggered the very scenario that has
prompted me (now twice) to talk about apr_get_temp_dir() on the apr
list. :-) Subversion usually tries to use the .svn/tmp directory that
is part of the working copy for its tempfiles. But on an import,
there's no working copy (and thus no .svn/tmp).
