stop it - if you would have read IT news (golem/heise) the last 7 years
or so you would know about /run and why it is a top-directory



Run-time variable data: Information about the running system since last
boot, e.g., currently logged-in users and running daemons. Files under
this directory must be either removed or truncated at the beginning of
the boot process; but this is not necessary on systems that provide this
directory as a temporary filesystem (tmpfs).
