This is really a distribution issue. Mandrake makes /tmp a mount using tmpfs,
thus eliminating this issue (at least for /tmp). As far as /var/tmp, this is
an issue. Mainly because /tmp by specification should be able to be cleared
at boot, whereas /var/tmp is suggested to be persistent between boots.
