Mailcap, tmpfiles and master processes such as browsers



I need some recommendations about bug http://bugs.debian.org/122768
The same problem should apply to most other browsers etc. as well,
and maybe dozens of other applications as well.

it's easy to reproduce:
- start a galeon process
- get a mail with some text/html attachment
- see the attachment
  -> attachment is saved to a /tmp file
  -> galeon is started with the /tmp file as parameter
  -> galeon tell's the running galeon to open a new window
  -> this process terminates
  -> the tmpfile gets removed
  -> the first galeon process can't open the tmpfile

How should this be handled?
Should the tmpfile be copied to another filename and be left over
for some tmpreaper program to purge it?

Greetings,
Erich
