I've confirmed the problem. Unfortunately. stmpclean simply expects to see absolute pathnames on its command line, such as /tmp. When it receives a relative one instead, it interprets it relative to the root directory, not the current one. A rather unfortunate behavior. We'll think if we can quickly enough come up with a fix better than refusing to work with non-absolute pathnames. (stmpclean cd's to / before starting the work not without a reason.)
