I'm not clued up enough with lisp to set the locations interactively.
What I tried was a skeleton .emacs file with only those two plus the

because the default /tmp/ directory is not available.

Whatever I try, I always end up with the same problem.  I thought
there might have been an issue with filenames beginning with a dot,
but that had no effect either.

have to tell emacs the whole path to the bin file in that location.
Would that have any effect on our ability to work out what's the
