I'd be interested in what bug number the patch is. But as I said to
Dick before the problem is that the non-filesystem namespace is linux
only - and thus effectively a non-fix, if not a source of more problems
for non-linux users.
Sigh; so it seems using $(HOME) is no good, so we get to scan all the
files in /tmp multiple times at startup - to avoid evil race-conditions.
