Instead of a cron job, why not put it into /etc/rc.local or something like that. It could run on boot, right after the process that clears /tmp. For that matter, it could run as part of the process which clears /tmp. I'm sure that's just a shell script anyway.

From rom a packaging perspective, it is bad to add things to /etc/rc.local (packaging should avoid touching existing files).

tmpwatch runs daily as a cron job, so at the very minimum the check
for /tmp/.esd would have to run once a day. We need to make the assumption that folks do not boot their servers every day ;-)

Everything in /tmp is temporary, it is not unreasonable for an
admin to just nuke /tmp/. We need to account for this possibility.

So my thinking is that an hourly cron job would be best.
