Random TmpXXX files loading into my program folders

My PathPilot box is networked.

Recently (I’ve had 2 machines running like this for 5+ years) when I open the folder in PP to load the file, I see hundreds of Tmp001, Tmp002, etc files all with 0bytes loaded in the folder. Not one or two, but hundreds. As the machine runs, more load. They keep coming from somewhere. PP must make these files independently as I am running programs that have been loaded onto the controller for months.

Is this something related to how PP is logging operations now? Is this common to my situation?

Are you on a Mac? This happened to me and I tried to fix it and in the process I could no longer see the machine from that Mac. I think it has something to do with the Mac spotlight.
