[OpenIndiana-discuss] gnome terminal (constantly) writing to /var/tmp/vti*

Does anyone know why gnome terminal (and other gnome stuff)
creates temporary files in /var/tmp instead of /tmp?
Is there an easy way to change that?
Would changing it cause problems?

Also, has anyone seen gnome terminal go into a mode where it
constantly writes stuff to /var/tmp/vti* files?  Those files have been
unlinked from the directory, but constantly writing them causes my
zfs root to stay too busy.  I wonder why it does this, occasionally.
