Package: lives
Version: 2.4.0~ds0-1+b1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

simply starting `lives` will create a new directory `~/livestmp` (in my home),
which is world read and writeable.
i think this is an absolte no-go.

$ cd ~
$ rm -rf .lives* livestmp
$ lives
$ ls -lhan livestmp/
total 8.0K
drwxrwxrwx   2 1000 1000 4.0K Sep  4 20:35 .
drwxr-xr-x 100 1000 1000 4.0K Sep  4 20:35 ..

i would expect any newly created directories to obey (at least) my umask settings.

i really hate it, if applications clutter my home-directory with automatically
created directories.
now lives has already a wizard that asks me which directory i want to use as a
scratch-dir, but it does so after ~/livestmp has been created...
