Apologies, my explanations were lacking a crucial element, I omitted
to mention that my Makefile also had at the top 

TMPDIR = tmp

thus it was not as in my message, sincere apologies.

In the big Makefile the $(TMPDIR) was used, but I did not think
it would create the phenomenon,

thus my Makefile for a MWE is:

TMPDIR = tmp

	chmod u+x script.sh; ./script.sh

All things being otherwise equal.

And, Josef, if I now do like you, with a latex rule, it does
not make the issue go away.

(I am on mac os x mavericks)

SORRY for the omitted crucial bit of information!

best regards
