Yes, but that's your system, you know it won't clean /tmp during reboot. If it 
did, you wouldn't have made your programs log to /tmp in the first place ;-)

Now, the standards for Linux recommend that you don't depend on a file being 
there, while you have greater chances of finding your file if you saved it in 
/var/tmp. That's all I wanted to say, nothing else. I don't mean to have 
everyone change their configs to that /tmp is erased or not erased or 
anything else.
