/tmp as tmpfs?

Should you have enough physical memory in your system (I'm doing this with 4Gb)

mount /tmp as a tmpfs

my line from /etc/fstab

tmpfs /tmp tmpfs auto,size=512M,uid=0,gid=0,mode=1777 0 0

It means that thumbnails stored here get wiped and regenerated after every boot but if the data in /tmp is in memory then it's quicker (no HDD access time) and it is lost at power down.
