Many Unixes clear /tmp at bootup. Even SUSE can do this. :-)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temporary_directory
"In Unix and Linux, the global temporary directories are /tmp and
/var/tmp. Typically, /var/tmp is for more permanent files, and /tmp is
for more temporary files. See Filesystem Hierarchy Standard. In
addition, a user can set his TMPDIR environment variable to point to a
preferred directory (where the creation and modification of files is
allowed)."
