Dear Slime Maintainers,

Please consider applying the attached patch, which affects
swank-allegro.lisp and allows customization of the temporary directory for
Allegro CL. It turns out that Allegro's (system:temporary-directory) [which
is the default directory used by system:make-temp-file-name] can sometimes
get confused on Windows in situations such as with certain network
filesystem configurations.

We will follow up with Franz to understand in more detail what can cause
the confusion, but in any case I think it will be useful to be able to
customize the location of Slime's temporary files without modifying Slime

My Best,

Dave Cooper, Genworks Support
