Maya 8 (Win32) fatal error at startup

Problem: Maya 8 (Win32 ver (win64 not tested)) startup failed with error message "fatal error: saving to C:\temp\...ma". Usually appears on notebooks (because of weak gfx system). Also may appear on desktops with old or poor gfx cards.
Solution: Disable triple buffering in your gfx card setup (ATi control panel e.g.). If problem persists , check your Maya file license one more time.

Also I want to add that after Autodesk bought Alias - Maya becomes too buggy (now 10th patch available to fix program bugs). As buggy as 3DsMax....sad....
