No worries.  Yes, I remember it too, perhaps it was fixed in that

I'm puzzled.  I've just tested on XO-1 with 12.1.0 build 21, and it
does not reproduce for me.

/tmp begins with size 51200 blocks according to df.  I was able to
increase the size with this command:

    sudo mount -o remount,size=90m /tmp

The file /etc/fstab has size=50m for /tmp.  I edited the file to 70m,
then rebooted.  /tmp/ now shows size 71680 blocks.
