Hi James,

I'll leave the global Phenix temp aspect to Billy.
For ligand identification specifically, the working directory is where 
all the files are located.  The program will purge most of the 
intermediate files upon completion. If the user interrupted the runs or 
if the program crashed at certain spots, the purge mechanism might not 
kick in. Even so, it'd take many runs to accumulate 20e6 (2e7?) files. 
In any case, you've got a point and I'll look into salvaging 
intermediate files of ligand identification as soon as they are not 
needed in the process.
