The new auto /tmp creation code should only kick in after you run
mergemaster.  Even then, it shouldn't have any effect in single user
mode because it hasn't been run yet at that point.  If you're being really
paranoid, you simply verifying that nothing is mounted on /tmp before
trying to mount it yourself should eliminate that from the equation.
