tmpfs regression in recent -STABLE

the following line in fstab used to work just fine for my /tmp:

tmpfs                   /tmp    tmpfs   rw,size=1g,mode=1777    0 0

But since I upgraded to 8.2-PRERELEASE, /tmp will soon run out of space
(usually after leaving the box overnight).

% df /tmp
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Avail Capacity  Mounted on
tmpfs             12   12     0   100%    /tmp

Yes, what you see here, is not "stuff" filling up the /tmp partition,
*BUT* the /tmp partition shrinking to a ridiculous size. /tmp only has
the usual stuff on it, as I can now no longer create temporary files

% du /tmp
4       /tmp/.X11-unix
0       /tmp/.XIM-unix
0       /tmp/.ICE-unix
0       /tmp/.font-unix
4       /tmp/ssh-tEgl0QxQHp
4       /tmp/ksocket-uqs
12      /tmp/kde-uqs
4       /tmp/fam-uqs
8       /tmp/.vbox-uqs-ipc
0       /tmp/worker-uqs
44      /tmp

Anything I could try?
