When invoking fsc by the compilation of a script fsc creates a /tmp/scala-devel directory that is writable only by the user.
A second user is not able to compile his scripts on the same machine. She gets the error: "Could not find a directory for temporary files".

in CompileSocket.scala

/** A temporary directory to use */
val tmpDir = {
val udir = Option(Properties.userName) getOrElse "shared"
val f = (Path(Properties.tmpDir) / "scala-devel" / udir).createDirectory()

if (f.isDirectory && f.canWrite) {
  info("[Temp directory: " + f + "]")
  f
}
else fatal("Could not find a directory for temporary files")

}

adding something like:
new java.io.File(Path(Properties.tmpDir) / "scala-devel").setWritable(true,false)
would maybe help.

easier would be to get rid of common machine level folder and create only user specific folders.

val f = (Path(Properties.tmpDir) / "scala-devel-" + udir).createDirectory()
