Summary

Temp folder is not cleaned up in serverscript, system drive may overflow

Product

FileMaker Server

Version

12.02

Operating system version

Mac OS 10.7, 10.6

Description of the issue

Files downloaded to temp folder within server script are not removed after script has finished.
This may lead to that the system drive may overflow.

See my problem here

seems to be the same issue but on Windows

Steps to reproduce the problem

Download 1500+ files to tmp folder with server script.
It doesn't matter if the download is via a plugin like ScriptMaster of if it's a download via FileMaker to a global field (with save to tmp).

Expected result

The tmp folder for the server script should be deleted after the script has finished

Actual result

the folder (randomly) remains with a (random) number of files left in there.

Configuration information

Server ADV 12.02, MAC OS 10.7.3/5, MAC OS 10.6.8

Workaround

delete files after usage but this sucks also a lot of FMTEMPFM....outtemp
Restart server, to have tmp cache removed completely.
