Thanks for the hint.
I made lots of changes and also introduced option --tmpdir in some additional storeBackup tools.
This will be part of the next release.

When setting tmpDir (either in the config file, via the command line or as an environment variable) part of the temporary files are written to the default "/tmp" location.

At list the scripts prLog.pl and stbuMd5Exec.pl behave this way.
Probably, it could be due to the "static" assignment of the value of the variable $prefix that seems to ignore the setting from the main script.
