Subject: stmpclean problem

I just deleted by accident very large number of non root file on my server.
And that's happen after I run this command: 

# cd /var/spool/mailfilter/tmp
# stmpclean ./ 

Looks like stmpclean interpreted "./" as "/". 

A lost all of non root file on /var and /home. This trashing stop on /proc/, 
on /var/log/messages I find this: 

.... stmpclean[16747]: RACE?: isemptydir(): opendir("fd") in /proc/13703: 
Permission denied, exiting 

May be someone familiar with smtpclean can explain this problem?
