TEMP=J:\temp works fine, while TEMP="J:\temp temp" fails with the
same error. (Actually with *exactly* the same error: The error
message again refers to "C:\\DOKUME~1\\User\\LOKALE~1\\Temp\\"). 

So it is (not unsurprisingly) the space. But why I'm the only one
affected with the problem? I can't be the only windows user with a
TEMP pointing to %Userprofile ;-(.
