I think /dev/shm is not usable, because the devfsd init script might
mount a new filesystem on /dev/ which would cover my mounted /dev/shm.

What about /run/? Can a new package simply use/create /run? I would add
/run to the directories of the package and mount a tmpfs there at
startup. Is this alright?

Good night, Jörg.
Es ist außerdem ein weit verbreiteter Irrtum das USENET "helfen" soll.
