Description (partial)


Not able to login to Mars. 


When Mars performs archiving, it creates several temporary cf- files that it uses during the archive and puts them in the /tmp directory.  When the archive process is complete, these temporary cf- files are suppose to be deleted.  The pnarchive process fails to delete these files.  As a result, less disk space is available.  After several archives, the temp directory becomes full and this prevents Mars form working properly.
