And that was not the case! I also thought so. But I watched very
closely. Because I saw these files getting deleted, it did a 'su -s .'
on and on. I saw that the directory got bigger a few MBs, but then
suddenly got smaller again. For example it was at 124 MB size, it got up
to 131 MB, but then back to 124. then it got bigger again, and back to
124MB again. And that very often.

I am sure these files were deleted, because where should the be gone to?
The iso.tmp did not get bigger.
