For me default means hardcoded built-in default, not something we set in
the piuparts.conf shipped in the .debs to make it work out-of-the-box.
Delete this line and the scripts that cleanup or check for problems in
PIUPARTS_TMPDIR will fail. piuparts itself will probably still run and
try to use /tmp (whcih might have wrong mount options).

Andreas Beckmann (9):
      make tmpdir setting mandatory for master/slave operation
      p.conf: add [global] PYTHONPATH setting
      master-bin/slave-bin: get PYTHONPATH from piuparts.conf
      p.conf: get rid of [global] prefix setting
      p.conf: reorder/reformat some config settings
      p.conf: wrap sections, piuparts-command, and piuparts-flags
      p.conf: make bts-from optional
      p-s: add support for running piuparts under /usr/bin/timeout
      p.conf: use /usr/bin/timeout to ensure piuparts termination

postponed the new known problem for some more .conf changes

since I started to use timeout, I never again had a hanging piuparts
process - previously there were a few packages that required me to stop
the slave, I just don't remember which they were ... and it could have
been database related
