Description Dario Landazuri 2008-11-24 12:58:50 EST
Description of problem:

Acroread appears to leave many little files in /tmp when a file is printed.  Over time, these files are not cleaned up and accumulate in /tmp.  They are not cleaned up via tmpwatch, it seems.  Is it possible this is a cups problem and not an acroread problem?  When one runs "file" on a representative file, the following output is given:

[root@syrah tmp]# file 492acf2fc2ded 
492acf2fc2ded: PPD file, ve

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a file in acroread.
2. print the file.
Actual results:

Numerous small files generated in /tmp that accumulate over time.

Expected results:

No small files generated in /tmp that accumulate over time.

Additional info:
