and THAT it what happens!

if nothing is using the PrivateTmp which reflects /tmp
for the service all is fine and you would not need it
at all, if the service is using it you are f**ed

may it be that PrivateTmp does not refresh the folders
/tmp/systemd-private* and if "tmpwatch" is deleting
them they are mnot re-created?

Can't create/write to file '/tmp/#sql_57d8_0.MYI' (Errcode: 2)

after restart mysqld.service which is here configured with
PrivateTmp all is fine again - recently i decided to dedicate
a special folder for mysqltmp and modified my daily logwatch
to ignore folders starting with "systemd-" but this is not
really perfect

i would suggest systemd to touch the folders regulary or watch if
they are removed by whatever foreign process and re-create them

[root at buildserver:~]$ rpm -q systemd
