I've seen this.  The cronjob nukes files in /tmp that are over x hrs old
(what I saw had x defined to be 24).  If you wanted to be creative, have
the cronjob nuke empty directories owned by users (those with a userid
> 1000 for example) afterwards.

If you want to tighten things up, just decrement x and decrease the time-
interval on the conjob.

I leave the 'clean-/tmp-on-reboot' code in since my /tmp is mfs anyway.
