You may also want to consider changing /tmp to be a TMPFS file system

add the line
tmpfs           /tmp    tmpfs   rw,mode=01777   0       0

to /etc/fstab (and remove any other /tmp lines).

A warning will come saying that it is highly experimental - but I've
been running with it for a while now without any issues.
