I've edited /etc/periodic/security/700.kernelmsg to filter out some harmless
ZFS warnings (related to too long device names for snapshotted ZVOLs). 
Unfortunately my editor left behind a backup file, so the next night periodic
ran both the backup and the original version.

Since /etc/rc.subr ignores scratch files in /etc/rc.d I imagined they would be
ignored in /etc/periodic too.  See attached patch to change periodic to ignore
them as well.
