plot and temporary files

when I perform a lot of plots with octave, it generates temporary 
files in /tmp with name 'oct-something'. It may eventually fill it up
and then gnuplot stop working with strange messages. Is there some setting 
to have octave or gnuplot remove unneeded temporary files ? I use 
octave-2.1.39 and gnuplot 3.7pl2 on debian sarge, but I don't think the 
problem is limited to those versions. And making /tmp bigger is 
definitively not an option.

Best regards
