Very odd. /tmp should be 01777 (ugo=rwx,+t), *never* anything
different. Removing the sticky bit would imply that any user can
delete and rename *all* files in /tmp, not just their own - this isn't
desireable. It might be that xfs (note : not XFS; that'a a filesystem)
was trying to use files which had previously been created by/as a
poke around in /tmp, remove anything which looks like it might be
chmod 01777 /tmp
