Subject maven-artifactNNNN.tmp in /tmp not cleaning
Date Wed, 03 Dec 2008 15:05:43 GMT

Hi all,

I think I have finally tracked down which part of our CI system is causing
an enormous number of files in the temp directory. 
I am finding files named "maven-artifactNNNNN.tmp" in the /tmp directory of
the CI box. There gets to be so many that simple
"rm -f maven-artifact*.tmp" fails due to too many files in list matching the
pattern. I have to use a "find...-exec rm"  to get it 
cleaned up. It looks like continuum is creating these files on build
completion for each project it builds. They appear to have a
hex checksum hash in them and they are about 32 or 40 bytes in size.

How can I get it to either stop or clean itself up when done? I am running
on a shared AIX system and this is causing
problems in the /tmp directory.
