Has anyone tested this feature on a Linux system where /tmp is mounted
in RAM, ie a JACK based system using a journaling filesystem? I know
using a temp partition of this type for Audacity project files causes
serious lock-up problems when the system runs out of RAM. (I'm sure I
posted a message about that to the audacity-devel list).

Sure! Audacity isn't very good about running out of temp file space,
and some of our projects run into gigabytes - so doing everything in
RAM isn't an option.

The workaround I'm using is to set Audacity's temp file location to
the users' home directory, which is not in RAM of course.
