The ebuild runs export tempdir="${T}" and then calls a setup.sh in 
src_install. setup.sh calls a maketemp.pl perl script which uses 
tempdir=/tmp/.webmin if no tempdir is specified. If the specified tempdir exists 
and doesn't meet a set of requirements it nukes it and recreates it. So 
changing the ebuild to export tempdir="${T}/.webmin" would probably fix it.
