problem with polredabs and temporary variables

I ran across a problem using polredabs and temporary variables.  The
polredabs0 function (actually the nilord function, which is called
indirectly by polredabs0) creates a new temporary variable and assumes
that it is lower priority than the variable of the input polynomial.
Ordinarily this works fine, but it fails if you're using the library
interface and call the function with your own temporary-variable

It's probably not worth fixing this looks like that would
be a major rewrite.  Is it worth adding a warning about this type of
problem to the "temporary variables" section of the manual?
