We've got a problem with expreserve: the normal operation of it under 386/ix
don't work too well.

It's supposed to be able to save editor files for recovery if the system
goes down. The trouble is, editor temporary files are stored in /tmp, which
is erased (as it should be) when the system comes back up.

Isn't something somewhere supposed to feed these editor temporaries into
expreserve to save them before nukeing /tmp when the system comes up?.
Anyone know what is supposed to happen here?.
