it iterates over:

$TMPDIR, $(pwd), /tmp

if non of these is writeable it throws an error (usually $TMPDIR isnt
set so you end up with a .$filename.swp file next to the file you
opened ...)

feel free to grab my vim package and have a look with "sudo journalctl

that vim package is rather moot anyway, you cant really open files
anywhere but in $SNAPP_APP_USER_DATA_PATH due to the confinement. 

theoretically this package would need read access to everything ... but
even then there is the issue that once you sudo the $PATH gets changed
and you wont find the executable anymore.
