There is no need for TWiki to walk though files that have nothing to do with TWiki when it is expiring sessions.

And there are other good reasons to keep twiki sessions isolated from other session files on shared hosts etc.

TWiki will automatically (probably through the CGI::Session) create a non existing directory as long as it has the rights to do so. And normally you have this right in the /tmp directory.

So I will change the defaults in TWiki.spec from /tmp to /tmp/twiki.

This should work for most and since it is a configurable parameter you can always change it to something else in configure so noone looses anything and a lot wins something.
