I suggest you wait for the merge from upstream pprof before submitting patches... I vaguely remember an issue about pprof's TMPDIRS and I think the mechanism has been fixed upstream.

Thank you for quick suggestion.

It seems google/pprof has the same issue.

Maybe I should make PR for google/pprof instead and wait for the merge.
