[R-sig-Geo] reading PRISM data from ftp [OT]

Howdy again,

This is a little off-topic for sig-geo, but I thought somebody might be able
to help here easier than r-help.

Can somebody please tel me why this works:

tmp <- tempfile()

While this doesn't:

tmp <- tempfile()

I have no proxy issues and can connect to the ftp site from the command
line, ftp client, firefox, etc. I'm about to process a lot of climate data
and would like to avoid downloading many small files.

Thanks! -Andy
