Left over temporary files when adding a "jll" file

When adding Leptonica_jll with the Pkg I’m left with 23 small files in /tmp'. This is from a clean system when no ~/.julia` directory exists: As an example:

jl_1l4NBI-download.gz.sha256
jl_5vHlCu-download.gz.sha256
jl_BM48nB-download.gz.sha256
jl_BRorCz-download.gz.sha256
jl_DI4ieL-download.gz.sha256
jl_FbPDkn-download.gz.sha256

The files are not deleted when Julia exits. And while it’s not causing any issues, it is a sign that temporary files are not being deleted correctly. I when spelunking though the Pkg source and didn’t see anything obviously creating these files. Is there any way of figuring out where they are coming from?

just want to add that some Linux distros / version clean up that folder every-time you reboot.

Yes, these are an annoyance. I’ve opened a PR to fix this here: https://github.com/JuliaLang/Pkg.jl/pull/1840

Thank you.
