Someone just pointed out to me that I should be more careful about saying
this.  What I probably should have said was,".../tmp should have *at
least* 0777 permissions."

In most cases, you'll probably want 01777.

Suffice it to say that that LAM needs to write to /tmp.  How you achieve
that is your business.  ;-)
