patch to tomcat-6 init script to create CATALINA_TMPDIR if needed
The tomcat-6 init script should at least try to create the CATALINA_TMPDIR if it does not yet exist rather than failing miserably.
This likely can be closed as the temp dir symlink is created by the instance manager. Thus its not likely this situation could occur again.
The init script actually aborts if the temp directory is not present now.
