Hmm. I wouldn't have thought so, but I forgot it does use a tempname for that, so I guess that's a possibility. I may be misremembering the names of the feed files.

I've never heard of that happening before, but it's not a process that's meant to be constantly being restarted either. At eduGAIN size, though, it wouldn't take that many times to accumulate.
