I have this added to /etc/rc.d/rc.6 on all my Slack boxes - it clears 
/tmp/ out on each shutdown:

# Clear /var/lock/subsys.
if [ -d /var/lock/subsys ]; then
   rm -f /var/lock/subsys/*

# Nick - 05/09/2013 - clear /tmp
echo "Clearing out /tmp/*."
if [ -d /tmp ]; then
   rm -rf /tmp/*

# Turn off swap:
echo "Turning off swap."
/sbin/swapoff -a

I have included the surrounding code so you can see where I put it - 
around line 207.
