Filling up /tmp directory after simulation

We have a problem in iccap linux 2006. When we do simulations, iccap fills up the /tmp directory. After a certain amount of files in the directory, it fails to continue. The debugger complains about having too many links in the directory.

My question, is there an option where iccap can clear up the tmp files after the simulation is done?

For example, the tmp directory might get filled up with one run on the optimizer with a lot of plots in it. As a result the optimizer fails to give a result because of this error and the overnight optimizing would be useless.

For now, our fix is just to manually delete the iccap simulation files in the /tmp directory.
