Thanks for the response and link Kirby. Like you say I think it's a
planning decision. Just allocate the disk space to the swap partition
instead of a /tmp partition. Running into "goofy issues" is a bit of a
concern though... echoing a value into /proc for a parameter like
clear_tmp_enable would be ideal. I like BSDs sysctl too ;-)
