FWIW, that doesn't happen here, at least not in $TMPDIR on my 
workstation.  I have $TMPDIR set to a tmpfs, so it's all clean at every 
boot.  And I like testing git kernels and the like, so a 10-day uptime 
tends to be about the limit.  Thus, NOTHING in $TMPDIR is ever a month 

My netbook is a bit of a different beast.  I still have a tmpfs mounted 
$TMPDIR, but I don't update it as regularly and it spends most of the 
time suspended to disk, so it may get six months or more in "uptime", 
while only /actually/ being "up" a few dozen hours.

And the router, running OpenWRT... I pretty much treat as the embedded 
system it is.  It's on the UPS for the VoIP phone system, and basically 
none of it goes down unless the ISP does maintenance on the cable link or 
something and I get a new IP.  Then, because the ATA's behind the router 
(behind the cable modem, also running Linux BTW, with a Motorola site 
link to sources to comply with the GPL, tho as all DOCSIS modems it's 
entirely cableco-side managed) and the NAPT keeps trying to route the VoIP 
using the old connections, I have to reboot at least the ATA and 
sometimes both the router and the ATA, to get a new, active VoIP 

I've thought that when I upgrade routers again, I'll try using an old 
computer with a few Ethernet cards stuck in it, booting from either USB 
thumbdrive or from a CD, no hard drive at all, unless I decide to run a 
server or something, which I might decide to do, as the ISP's killing its 
user webspace in a few days.  But even then I could run it off a DVD and 
reburn for updates.  (IIRC we had a thread with a bit of discussion on 
that a few months ago.)
