GATK temporary directory

Hello,

During running of the depthOfCoverage tool, I get the error:
/tmp/RsQHCt1W: No space left on device

I have tried changing the TMPDIR environment variable (and exporting) but eventually I get the same error. Is there a way to change the temporary directory that GATK uses?

I'm running GATK v2.1-8-g5efb575 on a Linux system.

Thanks,
Rick

    That's not specific to GATK, I believe you should be able to specify it on the command line with something like this:

    java -Djava.io.tmpdir=/tmp ...
