12.1.0 and 13.1.0 provide absurdly small temporary space

Since the recent discussion of which release is most reliable for remote 
deployments, I've started actually putting 12.1.0 to use in place of 
11.3.1.  One thing I notice is that (despite me customizing /etc/fstab 
with entries having reasonable "size=" values), on both 12.1.0 and 
13.1.0 'df' shows  sizes  of 1 MB for /tmp and for /var/tmp

Apparently *something* (on 12.1.0 and 13.1.0) remounts /tmp and /var/tmp 
after /etc/fstab gets processed.  I tried (on 12.1.0) copying a large 
file into /tmp - and got the error ""No space left on device".

Perhaps this situation contributes to difficulties seen with 12.1.0
