Yes indeed. Seems this is caused by Sylpheed and/or Glib doesn't use 
'GetTempPath()' as it IMHO should. I guess it also depends on your Glib version 
(haven't checked). When TMP/TEMP are undefined, 'GetTempPath()' will 
fallback to %USERPROFILE%.  Ref:

What happens if %USERPROFILE% is undefined, I don't know.
