but they do and this is was Chris Adams do not understand because he only
reads what he has quoted and not what was the reason for my reply which
gives "Did you read what I was replying to" a special taste
patching applications for "/var/tmp rather than /tmp" is a real problem
for people which are smart enough to know why they introduced a seperated
disk for /tmp
this changes means that the crap no longer goes to /tmp and will hit in
the future rootfs because switch to /var/tmp
HERE AGAIN THE FULL QUTOE TO GET BACK CONTEXT!
