That's how it's supposed to work - when the loginfo script is called its 
current directory is a working sandbox... in the case of client/server 
this is the server temp directory.  From this you can get extra 
information about the commit.

It always tries, but failure isn't fatal - partly because it happens 
after the client has disconnected and partly because on Unix the /tmp is 
usually cleared on each boot anyway.
