#32272 new defect

Lots of left-over folders in tor-browser-build/tmp folder filling up disk

For some reason folders in tor-browser-build/tmp sometimes do not get removed. The data here is not re-used between invocations of make and take up many 10s of gigabytes, so after time your build disk can become full.

I think we need to identify the cases where directories or files do not get removed from the tmp directory.

Some might be difficult to fix (for example a reboot in the middle of the build), but maybe there are others we can fix.
