FWIW: those are PHP session files. PHP has no mechanism to auto remove
them when done. If you filled up the disk with them (the last time I had
to do that was only 27GB or so and took less than a minute, so I can't
fathom how many you had), you'll probably want to make sure to setup a
cron job to regularly clear them out, because it will happen again.
