Did you update something?

I guess you're using Mint. :)

After you read the warning about /tmp/mintUpdate/qzryv4fj, what did you do?

I'd be very surprised if wpa_supplicant did *not* listen on the network.
That's its job.

I'd be very surprised if I were to be running dhclient, but if I were,
I'd also be very surprised if it did not also listen on the network.
Again, that's its job.

I've always thought it's a funny place to put shared memory, but I'd
imagine that this is perfectly OK.  I have a few pulse-shm- files on
some of my machines.  I'd put that stuff under /tmp/, or /var/run/ or,
basically, anywhere but /dev/.

Java gives me the screaming heeby-jeebies.
