This is also the case for 2.1.0 and probably all earlier versions.  The
foo.tmp versions are required for those executables and DLLs which might
still be active.  They are installed as tmp and added to a list of files
to be renamed after a reboot.

7z does not print very detailed information. Nevertheless I assume that
it detects duplicated files and only adds a second entry to the
directory pointing to the same offset.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
