Hi Jeroen,

the $TMPDIR must be created at each execution node. Code for this can
be found in daemons/execd/exec_job.c near the comment

      /* make tmpdir only when this is the first task that gets started
         in this queue. QU_job_slots_used holds actual number of used
         slots for this job in the queue */

those $TMPDIR's however(!) get not created before the first task is
started at an execution node. Possibly your setup depends on $TMPDIR
be available before the first task is started?
