if noone is running grass, then they are probably safe to delete
(assuming that no background job is running).
If anyone identifies a problem with temporary files hanging around,
see if you can figure out which program put them there and then file a
bug report (using bug.report.sh).
This is may be indicative of sloppy programming. I'm sometimes guilty,
but after writing one program that used a *lot* of tmp space and
filling my quota, I've tried to clean up my act (and src code).
P.S. does anyone know where unlink() is defined?
