Ok, I mentioned it because you said you’ve killed LyX. If you’ve quit LyX
regularly then the temporary files are removed and you cannot find them anymore.
The running process has this open and therefore you can see it. It’s on disk
present until you kill the background process and then the disk space is freed.

LyX is always exited with Ctrl-Q. The .tex processes that remained and
consumed 100% of the CPUs (according to top) were killed by root with the
kill -9 <pid>

FWIW I've run only linux since 1997 and am quite familiar with it.
