This really isn't about R, but configuring R. We're running R 3.0.2-1, the
current default package, on CentOS 6.5 On a long-running job, R is
creating files in /dev/shm: each set of three files are named (8 hex
digits)-(4 hex digits)-(4 hex digits)-(4 hex digits)-(12 hex digits), and
then sem.(same as the name)_counter_mutex, and (same as the name)_counter.

For example,

Is there some way to configure R to add a prefix, say, to each of these
files? We're running rkhunter (rootkit hunter) for security, and it
complains about suspicious files, and I'd like some way to be able to tell
it to, say, ignore R_temp.whatever....

If this has been answered before, please give me a link.

Thanks in advance.

        mark, sysadmin
