I have recently installed FC4 and have found that the /tmp directory permissions have changed a few times.
I am running qmail-toaster which needs write permissions on /tmp for spamd and other things to work. They recommend "chmod 1777 /tmp"

SElinux is disabled.
I cant find anything in cron.daily.

Is there any new security script that is run by cron or at startup that would be changing the /tmp permissions ?
