So, working on a unix system, it's common that /tmp has the sticky bit set (i.e. only the owner of the temporary file can write/delete it). This is an issue when running drush cron.
If I upload a file, and the file gets stored in /tmp, then the owner is _www (I'm on a MacOS machine). When I run drush, I'm running it as my own user, so if I run drush cron then my user is attempting to delete the temporary file(s) that was uploaded, and I get a permission denied.
Can anyone think of a simple workaround for this problem?
