Yes it does.

I found something interesting:

run-ecl.sh works if

a) it is directly under tmp, i.e. /tmp/cl-bench
b) directly under $HOME or elsewhere not in /tmp
c) it doesn't work if it is in /tmp/$ANY_DIRECTORY/cl-bench

But: run-clisp.sh also works in case (c). The only thing special for tmp I
can think of is the sticky bit. I checked permissions, I even copied
cl-bench over from a successful run, SELinux is disabled.
