I find some of the assertions in this thread confusing.  I've been using
tmpfs /tmp on my laptop for quite some time and have watched hour-long
movies via the Adobe Flash player and have never noticed any unexpected
consumption of space in /tmp.

Are you sure that video streaming via Adobe's Flash player works the way
that you seem to think it works?
