Nope. No file named tempfile.tmp in the directory structure to be
imported or anywhere else on the machine for that matter. I tried
rebooting just in case it was some hidden system file (even though my
settings are to show everything), but that didn't do anything.

I know of issues with Apache 2.2 and Windows, but my server is on
Fedora. I hadn't heard of any issues with Linux installs. If need be
I'll change it, but this problem is definitely local from what I can
