[Rt-users] /tmp running out of innodes

This is probably a mod_perl question, but since its happening on my RT
server, thought I'd start here.

Running RT 3.0.10 on FreeBSD 4.9 w/ Apache 1.3.29, mod_perl 1.28,
mod_php4.3.4 (I don't believe relevant, but for thoroughness...) and MySQL

/tmp is a 256MB ramdisk (/dev/vn0c) for better performance. Yes, directory
perms are set correctly... Well, they match what the physical disk was
anyways... MySQL has no problems writing/deleting its socket file.

Today I started getting messages about having running out of innodes on
/tmp. There were a ton of folders owned by www. 

I assume these are sessions? Why aren't they getting deleted?

I recently moved RT from one box to another, so I looked at the old one, and
sure enough, same sets of folders. But, no messages, so either it cleaned up
better, or maybe the ramdisk has a lower allowed innodes?

Any suggestions?
