libpam-tmpdir create the missing folder when a new pam session is
created.  I guess this do not happen in freedom-maker.  I am not sure
what the correct approach is, but either freedom-maker can be changed
to call processes in a way that create a new pam session, or it can
set TMP and TMPDIR to /tmp/ to avoid the problem.

Perhaps you got time to prepare a patch along these lines to fix it?

Happy hacking
