Recently debian put /tmp under tmpfs.

Even if it increase reponsivness under desktop, it ruin completly
sciene and imaging software that do some off loading on /tmp.

For instance using gscan2pdf on 60pages document create more than 1.2G
of image file under /tmp and crash du to missing space.

What are the solution for this kind of problem ?

Can you make this software use /var/tmp instead of /tmp, and would that address your issue?

There's some discussion about /var/tmp vs. /tmp, as part of a larger discussion on /tmp as tmpfs, in http://bugs.debian.org/630615 .
