I'll have to look at this - there's a discussion at
of why this was introduced. I remember that this was
a frustrating issue, as something that worked on one
system in removing temp files didn't work on another
(at least between Steve and myself). What was committed
seemed to work "most" of the time for "most" systems,
at least at that time.
