In info.grass.user you write:

I assume you are writing this because GRASS creates temporary files
under the .tmp in the user's mapset and some programs leave them
behind. If you are SURE that the programs that created the files
in the .tmp directories are not runinning, then this should be OK.
GRASS will recreate the .tmp directory and and subdirectories when
it needs them.
