Description:
------------
Some systems add a terminating directory separator to the TMPDIR env variable, such as Mac OS X. This is not consistent with the fallback default for sys_get_temp_dir(), which is '/tmp'. This causes problems when constructing filenames when not using tempnam().

Here is a short patch against 5.2 HEAD

203c203,209
< 			temporary_directory = strdup(s);
---
> 			/* on some systems (notably mac os x) TMPDIR has a DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR appended */
> 			if(s[strlen(s)-1] == DEFAULT_SLASH) {
> 				temporary_directory = tsrm_strndup(s,strlen(s)-1);
> 			} else {
> 				temporary_directory = strdup(s);
> 			}
>

> 

Reproduce code:
---------------
<?php
echo sys_get_temp_dir() . "\n";


Expected result:
----------------
/var/folders/yC/yCto0tGnHIqmgIv2v8-pEk+++TI/-Tmp-

Actual result:
--------------
/var/folders/yC/yCto0tGnHIqmgIv2v8-pEk+++TI/-Tmp-/

Instead of two strlen() call, i could see it being defined to a value. Adding something like int len = strlen(s); after the if and before the first strdup, however im not on OSX so i wont touch it :)

It's not MacOSX specific, you can always set TMPDIR whatever you want.
