#360: Cannot create temp file on startup
 Reporter:  ltning    |       Owner:  phk  
     Type:  defect    |      Status:  new  
 Priority:  normal    |   Milestone:       
Component:  varnishd  |     Version:  trunk
 Severity:  normal    |    Keywords:       
 Starting varnishd 2.0.1 with default startup script on FreeBSD 7.0 inside
 a jail fails in bin/varnishd/mgt_vcc.c line 152. It attempts to create a
 temporary file for compiling the VCL (presumably), using a relative path
 (i.e. no idea where it actually attempts to create it.

 Specifying instance name with -n /tmp/foo and chowning /tmp/foo to www is
 a workaround. It seems that having a world-writeable directory is not
 sufficient; it must be owned by the same user as the varnishd process
 (needs confirmation).
