It's certainly the minimum required change. However, after this patch
Mail::Audit is still leaving behind a file in /tmp every time it's used
without $HOME, whether logging is enabled or not. And the documentation
remains out of sync. (Naturally, it's your call to decide whether these
should be fixed or not, but I just wanted to point them out.)

FWIW, the patch in #350954 by Robert L Mathews addresses both of these issues.
