Thanks for this. I admit I wasn't aware of this mechanism so have
learned something :-)

Interestingly though, the man page says that files and directories will
be removed. That doesn't seem to happen. I have directories in /tmp (on
F15) which are well over 10 days old. They have no files in them, some
have subdirectories, but no files at all. So it seems to more purge /tmp
of files, but leave the directory structures in place.
