Thanks indeed!
That's a nice change, and it could be the reason of the segfault that
some have seen.

That said, that's not enough for this bug which is about deleting
temporary files.  As you can see in my first paste there are no
segfaults happening, and the tempdir is not cleaned.  I just tested
current git HEAD containing your change, and it still does not properly
clean when sigTERMing diffoscope.
