Does Haiku have a dedicated temporary directory that automatically gets cleaned up at shutdown? You know, like C:\WINDOWS\TEMP or /var/ tmp?/var/tmp ;-) or just /tmp ...
Now that will teach me not to be lazy and search for things in Terminal, not just in Tracker. Dammit, I miss Midnight Commander!
though actually I'm not sure it's cleaned up at boot yet, as it used tobe on BeOS.
Doesn't look like it - mine was full of crud.For what I'm working on, I need to see what is happening in there, so I symlinked it to ~/config. Now I can open it in Tracker.

It might be worth logging a bug or enhancement for that. I've also had thoughts of having a simple schedule server (a la cron, but not so obscure) which could be set up to empty the Trash every month or whatever.
I tried cleaning it up with a UserShutdownFinishScript, but it looks like that script is one BeOS convention that didn't make it into Haiku

use: FINDDIR -l on the command line to see the list of directories, running "finddir B_COMMON_TEMP_DIRECTORY" returns what you are looking for.
Yes, I see. Insurance against some crazy distro maker putting it somewhere else. Thanks for the tip. I'll have to look into finddir.
