/tmp is meant for temporary files, and thus those are deleted after some time.
try to make the application put it's config somewhere else.

Hmm, I doubt it..., tmp is a TeMP folder...it gets cleaned out. It may well be nothing to worry about, I guess the config gets rebuilt every time anyway, otherwise the makers would'nt put it in the temp folder...

What app is it? Maybe a tweak in the main config could help?
