AFAIK, the only way that it won't exist is if the user manually unsets
it. I wouldn't count upon the rest of Window working if you do that,
though; Windows doesn't have a global temporary directory along the
lines of /tmp or /var/tmp.

If it's not set, getenv() will return NULL and G_store() will
segfault. A check leading to G_fatal_error() can be added to G_store()
if desired (or to the above code).
