Is it safe to delete old files created in pgsql_tmp?  I ask because a
rogue query created almost 800 GB of temporary files and I would like
to reclaim that disk space.  The query was killed (using kill -9 which
I know is not the right thing to do...) so did not get the chance to
clean up after itself.
