 I don't think this is really a bug, but anyway.  It would probably be
 safer to use:
 	tmpmfs_flags="-S -o noatime,noexec,nosuid,nosymfollow"
 The ability to actually *use* whatever options are best for your system
 is exactly why I made the original change to rc.d/tmp, but I'm not sure
 if it would be good to enforce so strict permissions to everyone :-/
