Package: browser-plugin-gnash
Version: 0.8.10-6+b1
Severity: minor


I noticed that after some use, that is, after loading several Flash
applets in my Iceweasel browser, without even starting them, Gnash
leaves many files in /tmp. For instance:
     -rw------- 1 tanguy tanguy 237 juin  26 13:41 /tmp/gnash-cookies.68umGb
     -rw------- 1 tanguy tanguy 237 juin  26 13:54 /tmp/gnash-cookies.hbEh7L
     -rw------- 1 tanguy tanguy 431 juin  26 13:43 /tmp/gnash-cookies.IRoPzy
     -rw------- 1 tanguy tanguy 411 juin  26 13:43 /tmp/gnash-cookies.LO1OmR
     -rw------- 1 tanguy tanguy 303 juin  26 13:46 /tmp/gnash-cookies.mlG4XD
     -rw------- 1 tanguy tanguy 431 juin  26 13:46 /tmp/gnash-cookies.p4AREk

I am not sure of what these should become, but I do not think they
should be left in /tmp like that. They should either be stored
permanently in some hidden directory in $HOME, or deleted if they are no
longer of use.
