Are you in /var/tmp/? If so, say so.

These are temporary files and most likely you can remove the old ones.
Is PID 01452 still around?
ps -fp 01452

>Kapil: how can we tell you anything with the amazing names these files have.

You should know these are temp files, from tmpnam(3).

A simple search didn't find anything. But I did find your same question:

The SFM Release Notes mention something about temp files, JAGag31617:
