Package: openssh-client
Version: 1:5.8p1-3
Severity: normal

ssh-agent creates $SSH_AUTH_SOCK within a temporary directory of the
form /tmp/ssh-XXXXXXXXXXXX.  These directories often stick around and
don't get cleaned up.  (Right now I have piles of them just from the
past month.) These directories seem like a perfect fit for /var/run,
rather than /tmp, since they exist primarily to provide a socket.
Moving them to /var/run should not break anything (since $SSH_AUTH_SOCK
would point to the new location), and should allow these directories to
get automatically cleaned up.  Furthermore, this reduces clutter in
