I take it maxima redefines toplevel or equivalent -- then why not call
(get-temp-dir) in the redefined version?

I must be missing something here. I really don't see how Maxima,
or any random user program, can take on the responsibility to
initialize its Lisp implementation.

Everyone is area of *top-level-hook*, yes?  The way it appears to me
at the moment, get-temp-dir would be properly invoked were the maxima
toplevel to be invoked via this hook.

It appears that *top-level-hook* is GCL-specific (it doesn't appear in CLHS)
but if we can resolve this problem by arranging to be called
via *top-level-hook*, that would be better than calling (get-temp-dir) directly.

All the best
