"Are you finding less and less storage space on your root
filesystem, but you can't figure out where it's all going? You may
have a temporary (/tmp) directory gone amok."
"The /tmp directory is a world-writable, world-readable
directory that almost every Linux application uses to hold
temporary files. Unfortunately, many Linux applications are also in
development or pre-release (among them, popular versions of both
KDE and GNOME) and don't properly clean out their /tmp files,
especially when they crash. You may just have megabytes of storage
being wasted in /tmp."
