| With Varnish 3.0.1 a (memory mapped) file was thus created in /var/tmp, when Varnish was started.
| With Varnish 3.0.2 no such file is created. And I don't see Varnish having any open file descriptors to anything in /var/tmp.

3.0.2 is fixed to unlink the file on startup to automatically free the
space when Varnish stops.  Unlinked files do not have a directory
associated with them, just a file descriptor.
