tmp is cleaned regardless of the fstype, also apps should not store any
important data there at all anyway

kdecache holds *all* pixmap caches + sycoca + http cache. of course only
the former two will have an impact on login speed but that impact should be
noticable as we are talking about ~85MiB plasma caches (theme + wallpapers)
+ >10 MiB icons + ~1MiB ksplash + >1MiB sycoca... almost 100MiB of crap
that needs to be loaded right at startup
