Learning not to use /tmp to place large files. Setting TMPDIR=/home/tmp

/tmp is for temporary files, and I expect to place files there as large as the partition is. I am not interested in analysing the files in what temporary directory they belong today.

Besides if you set TMPDIR to /home/tmp, you don’t need /tmp at all, no matter if tmpfs or not. If you want a system tmp create one and set TMPDIR for these system services.
