mkstemp fails but data still transferred

Follow up ;
I'm no C programmer but looking at the receiver.c source and it appears
that the data does just get discarded (look at the receive_data function
for more info),
static void discard_receive_data(int f_in, OFF_T length)
receive_data(f_in, NULL, -1, 0, NULL, -1, length);
I'm confused why this is the case - is there a reason why this is done ?
