Maybe, but it is easy to get abandoned items in /tmp;  especially if
something abends.

Most distributions have a scheduled task that cleans up stuff from /tmp.
For openSUSE this is /etc/cron.daily/suse.de-clean-tmp,  perhaps Debian
has an equivalent that either hasn't run yet or isn't picking up on
those items.
