myisampack 1.22 as shipped with mysql 4.1.12 doesn't delete the .TMD temp files if -T flag is passed to myisampack.

How to repeat:
myisampack TABLE -T /tmp

When it's done, /tmp/TABLE.TMD is extant.

Suggested fix:
myisampack should delete the TMD file when it's done compressing the table.
Alternatively, the documentation should explain that the file does not get deleted.
