Perhaps more suprising is that, although you can set MINTMPKB in
/etc/default/mountoverflowtmp to specify the threshold for mounting
an emergency /tmp, this does not affect the size of the tmpfs. The
result is that the emergency tmpfs may actually be much smaller than
the available space in the real /tmp. In other words, if you set
MINTMPKB higher than the default value, then this feature is worse
than useless.
