Re: Clearing the .tmp directory on master startup
snapshots knows about the /hbase/.tmp directory but unless you remove the
without archiving or move to a location that is not the original one
everything is fine.

for me is ok moving the .tmp deletion later.
do you want to restore the unfinished delete instead instead of finishing
the deletion?
