svn: Can't open '.svn/tmp/tempfile.tmp': No such file or directory

Hello,

some days ago i discovered a strange effect.
I wanted to execute a 'svn status -u' in a completely write protected
filesystem.
This produces an error-message which i didn't expect.
  'svn: Can't open '.svn/tmp/tempfile.tmp': No such file or directory'
Why does the simple status query write to the filesystem?

After some gdb-session i figured out two functions which use temporary
files
and which try to place them into the current '.svn' directory.

  1. svn_wc_translated_file()
  2. svn_wc_create_tmp_file()

I changed the implementation to use 'svn_io_temp_dir()' and my problem
disappeared.

Now come the questions?

1. Why don't these (kind of) functions use svn_io_temp_dir() ?

2. Wouldn't it be wise to use for nearly any call to
'svn_io_open_unique_file'
    a temp path delivered by svn_io_temp_dir() ? Because these files
    don't have fix names and therefore have all a 'temporary' nature

3. Wouldn't it be more comfortable to integrate the call sequence
     -svn_io_temp_dir()
     -svn_path_join
     -svn_io_open_unique_file
    into one function named 'svn_io_open_unique_tmp_file' ?

thus
