Apparently, 12.1 has added /var/tmp/ to

that I've lost a few GB of data, which used to be safe there.
Needless to say that I'm not pleased. No backups, because it
wasn't *that* important, but I find such changes without warning
suboptimal, to put it politely.
I would agree with the above.
Traditionally /var/tmp has been in "LONG_TMP_DIRS_TO_CLEAR"...
I have them set to 'autoclean at 21 and 42 days', respectively.
I think it would be irresponsible and violate normal unix-cleaning
standards to treat /var/tmp the same as /tmp.
If the desire was to treat them the same, then there would never have been
two separate directories in the first place!
