bug#28073: 26.0.50; make-temp-file fails when argument is "" (Permission denied)

Benjamin Andresen-3

I noticed this when using password-store.el[1] which I use to look up
passwords using pass[2]

The file hasn't been updated since 2015 and I know it's been working so
I assume a recent change caused this.
Merely putting "x" instead of "" as the argument works fine.

[2] https://www.passwordstore.org/

Steps to reproduce

Starting from emacs -Q:
M-: (make-temp-file "")
;; Debugger entered–Lisp error: (file-error "Creating file with prefix" "Permission denied" "/tmp")
;; make-temp-file-internal("/tmp" nil "")
;; make-temp-file("")
;; eval((make-temp-file "") nil)
;; eval-expression((make-temp-file "") nil nil 127)

Paul Eggert
Yes, I introduced that bug in make-temp-file recently. Sorry about that. It
should be fixed in master now:
