Thanks to the following; the only two responses I received:

Kevin Sheehan <>
Jochen Bern <bern@TI.Uni-Trier.DE>

Original Problem:

None; so the problem remains.

To Jochen Bern, I do not have any cron jobs doing any cleaning of /tmp at all.
Kevin Sheehan provided a better clue to the puzzle; but, since the system has
all the Sun recommended patches especially 103900-01 and 103901-05 it is hard
to tell what the fix could be. I will be looking into it when I am less busy.
