Just in case you encountered problems that *may* be related to
mergemaster, vi, or any other software you're running that requires
"persistent temporary files" (sounds illogical). There shouldn't
be much stuff accumulating in /var/tmp.
If you didn't have trouble yet, I don't think it is a big no-go to
symlink /var/tmp tp /tmp (tmpfs).
