Description Dan Goodliffe 2016-05-17 20:23:31 UTC
As per summary.
Line 845 of /usr/sbin/etc-update (in portage v2.3.0_rc1) just calls exit 0 if preen succeeds, bypassing the tidy up of tmp dir.
This leads to a build up of junk in /var/tmp

akira ~ # ls -d /var/tmp/etc-update-*
/var/tmp/etc-update-11490  /var/tmp/etc-update-15218
(and many more)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rm -r /var/tmp/etc-update-*
2. etc-update --preen
Scanning Configuration files... -d /var/tmp/etc-update-*

Suggest something like this at line 845 instead.

${PREEN} && die "Preen success" 0

Using die here seems a bit dirty, but that's where the current clean up is done.
