Another nice tmp race

        Playing with my new shiny Slackware 3.5 box I have noticed
something unusual. The in.pop3d daemon creates sometimes locks for some
mailboxes in /usr/tmp/.pop. The directory is  drwxrwxrwt so there will be
no problem in creating nice links to /zImage, /vmlinuz, /etc/shadow or
whatever comes in your head. Be creative.
        Thank God there are still temporary directories.
        Please notify the authors, I still don't know their email and I
apologize for that.

Documentation is like sex: when it is good, it is very, very good; and
when it is bad, it is better than nothing.
