That value is either accurate or inaccurate. Either way, it seems a bug 
- the question is, where?

If accurate, it would appear there's something very unusual about your 
OS config, since temp files are a common necessity in modern OSes.

If inaccurate, it would appear to be a bug in LC 8.1.4 RC1.

Have you tried that in 8.1.4 RC2?

If the problem is repeatable with the latest build you might want to 
file a bug report on that.

FWIW, testing both LC 8.1.4 RC2 and 9.0 DP6 I get a valid path to my 
system's temp folder.
