Minor bug "failed to make fifo error" resulting from left-over cruft (Was: [distcc] distcc 0.9 released)

Got this error when trying to run with distcc 0.9.  Looks like I had cruft left over 
from many older compiles that got in the way in /tmp.  Any way to make 
distcc/distccd clean up after itself or more resiliant?  Or is this cleanup 
something that should be done by a sysadmin-ish cron job?  For now, I'm just making 
the cleanup part of my distccd startup script.

I'm running tests with 0.9 now.  My RH 6 boxes seem to be working just fine (almost 
24 hours now.)  Re-running the RH 7 test now after cleaning out the left-over cruft 
in /tmp.

Keeping my fingers crossed...
