I wonder why you have piles of those files, esp. from mhshow?
Do you kill it rather than let it terminate gracefully?  In
any case, that should be fixed.

And post should only leave droppings when it fails.

The nmh-storage profile component can be set to put some,
but maybe not all, tmp files whereever you specify, see
mhstore(1).  But it will have the possibly undesired, in
this case, effect of causing mhstore to write its files in
the same directory.  Instead of using nmh-storage for tmp
files, maybe we should use MHTMPDIR/TMPDIR/TMP?
