[mod_python] File Sessions security problem?

I have been playing with mod_python (ubuntu std, breezy build) and I
noticed that the sessions db is stored in the /tmp dir with
permissions that will permit any user to read the file. I'm not to
happy with this since I store some very sensitive info in the session

It's easy to chmod it, but perhaps it would be better to create the
file with more restrictive permissions?
