Bugs in xindy 2.0b for linux i386

Dear Roger,

I found the following bugs in the indicated version of xindy (see subject).

1. Xindy cannot find its preprocessed input.
In the xindy file (perl) line 218 should be
 $Rawidx = &quote_string($tmpfile);
instead of:
 $rawindex = &quote_string($tmpfile);

2. Xindy stops the makefile.

The return value is 9 if sig_catch is called at line 248 (sig_catch calls exit(9);).
The line should be
  unlink $tmpfile;  # do cleanup 
instead of:
  &sig_catch; # do cleanup

3. If -t (trace) option is given for Xindy then the trace messages will br printed into the *.ind file instead of the log file.
Forget if it is intentional.

Thanks for working on Xindy.
