There shouldn't be any left-over server directories unless the server
crashes or encounters a serious error.  Is this just general caution, or
have you had an actual problem with left-over directories?

A good alternative to the memory based filesystem is a disk based
filesystem that supports soft updates (even better than a virtual memory
based filesystem, not quite as good as a physical memory based
filesystem but a much more efficient use of resources).  If neither of
those are viable alternatives, you can at least mount /tmp asynchronous
if your system supports it, although that pretty-much means that you
have to recreate it on reboot rather than just fsck-ing it.
