[SATLUG] /tmp setting

I need some help with /tmp. I have Ubuntu 8.04, with the photo program
F-Spot. It has a nice "send by mail" feature that I can't make work.
I'm using Thunderbird. For example, when I attempt to send photo
1125.jpg the generated e-mail, with attached photo, fails with a message
"Sending of message failed.
"Unable to open temporary file /tmp/tmp3b1e4267.tmp/img_1125.jpg.
Check your 'Temporary Directory' setting."
Just before attempting to send the e-mail, /tmp looked like this:
andy at Izzy:/tmp$ ls
gconfd-andy orbit-andy seahorse-WzHXrc tmp.cYaFox5929
gconfd-root orbit-root tmp3b1e4267.tmp Tracker-andy.6121
keyring-q0OXNU pulse-andy tmp77ece4da.tmp..jpg virtual-andy.apbDLN
andy at Izzy:/tmp$
What do I do? I haven't a clue about " 'Temporary Directory' setting."
