L.1.4 Rsh and /tmp_mnt/

The `rsh' command used to start processes on remote machines (in MsgSS::Create) uses the cwd: this leaves the /tmp_mnt/ on the front of UCL path names, causing a problem if the remote process is on a machine where the directory is not mounted in that way. In practical terms this means at UCL that machine croissant cannot be used as the filestores are mounted on croissant, so the /tmp_mnt/ prefix is not allowed.
