In addition, at shutdown time everything in /tmp is fair game for
deletion.  As one of the last things done on all my machines I clean out
/tmp.  In my case the reason isn't space, but clutter.  With the default
/tmp cleaning, things build up to such a level that downloaded files
that I only want to look at once are hard to find (such as pdf files
etc).

Put this in /sbin/halt.local mode 755.
