shell link copy files eats all of /tmp

When using a shell link to a remote host to copy multiple files, it is not possible to copy more than the size of your /tmp, even though none of the files is bigger than your /tmp max size.

deleting the /tmp/mc-[username]/fish-files only happens after all files are being copied. The temp file should be deleted right after the copy of that single file is done.

more than 3 files of 900MB on /mnt/data
/tmp on a partition of 2 GB

when trying to copy the files to a remote host only the first 2 files will succeed. The /tmp partition will be 100% full. MC gives an error regarding disk space. When choosing to skip all, it will continue with the rest of the files, creating 0byte files on the remote host.
