Buying a used car from a dealer who bought it at an auction - and he doesn't have the title.

I'm buying a used car from a dealer who bought it at a dealer auction. I've had the car checked out mechanically and whatnot, and I'm comfortable with that side of things. The title is "in transit" from the owner, and so the dealer doesn't have it. He says he'll complete a temporary registration in the meantime, and pass on the title when it comes.
This seems a little weird to me, but I havn't bought a car this way before. Thoughts? Preferably quick thoughts?
