another Bug causing typo3temp to fill up with files
this is another bug causing typo3temp to fill up with files which will never be deleted,
on frequent visited sites this can slow the site down within days or weeks
temporary files will be created with IDs/names using something like "md5(microtime())"
The submitted patch works but is slow and dirty. It takes the serialized array variable of the item as a substituion of "microtime()".
The best solution is a management of temporary files by offering library functions for generating IDs and creating and deleting temp files.

Yes, it's also in version 4.2.
And 4.1, 4.0, 3.8 and 3.7! The line numbers differ:
The worse code fragment "md5(microtime())" is found many times in all versions.
