I'm not totally clear what this means in debian-edu.  However, we
(principally Scott Balneaves, with some help from Matt Oquist and myself)
tracked down and fixed a problem in Edubuntu where /tmp was fillling up
with temporary ltsp swap files.  The fix is really to LTSP so I guess
they'll get that too.  That may be it -- along with some work by Vagrant

This fix should hopefully appear in Edubuntu Gutsy, but it's easy to apply
on feisty.  Look at answer number 9 here:

As both are using LTSP, both should have much the same developments.
