Hm, that doesn't look right. A suspended session's directory should contain many
more files, like a spool symlink, a cache directory, a mimebox symlink, an
options file, a cmdoutput file, a state file and maybe others.

I really do believe that something is deleting files in /tmp/ without you
knowing it!

Did you really check for a cron job or the like that might clean up /tmp/? It
looks like CentOS 7 has this configurable in /usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/tmp.conf and
uses systemd for that purpose.
