on my system removing anything is pointless as I run /tmp in tmpfs. I realize the amount of work this does is trivial. It's still more work than it should be doing.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

This isn't actually a bug.
wipe_tmp=YES/NO controls which code branch we use to clean the directory in question.
wipe_tmp_dirs= is a space separated list of directories to actually clean.

As such I've changed wipe_tmp_dirs to clean_tmp_dirs (old var is still supported) in r1503 so that the implied action makes more sense.
