improper tempfile creation leading to crash #14

poclbm tries to create some sorf of .elf tempfiles in its directory.but this leads to security problems under win7(i have read unter winxp and linux too), which do not allow such behaviour. resulting in the following error:

IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '75f47f8cf8b80b32b9f6eea7786559d4.elf'

to my knowledge such files should be created in the %temp% folder. so this should be fixed quite easily just change the path where the .elf-files are created and recompile the program. i would do it myself but being completely new to github and python makes that quite hard.

I'm not sure why Win7 would disallow that, provided that poclbm isn't installed in some readonly system directory. In any case, it seems like a good idea, so I'm proposing #39. (Please jamesjames, try it out when you can).
