[Nagios-devel] Nagios3: Temp-files were not deleted

Dear list members,

in the temp_path of nagios3 some of the temporary files seems to be not 
deleted after use. 

# TEMP PATH
# This is path where Nagios can create temp files for service check
# results, etc.
temp_path=/tmp/nagios

Yeserday I found some thousand old files in this folder, most of them 
several days old. Some were empty (size 0)  but some contained a 
checkresult.

Example:
OK - 10.xxx.xxx.xxx: rta 12.929ms, lost 
0%|rta=12.929ms;3000.000;5000.000;0; pl=0%;80;100;;

I stopped nagios, deleted the files and started nagios again.
Since yesterday evening there are a lot of new files, which are not from 
actual checks.

As you can see, many of these were generated Jan  5 08:05. That's the time 
I stopped and restarted nagios. 
I suppose active checks at the time nagios is stopped are the main reason 
for this but also during normal operating some files remain in this folder 
and were not deleted after use.
