Many temporal files created by bashbug when closing SSH session

We had a problem with a Java application that run out of memory:
Caused by: java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space
        at java.io.UnixFileSystem.list(Native Method)

It happened because of 2 million files in /var/tmp:
sapserverx:/var/tmp# ls -l|wc -l

Almost all "ExAAA??????", 0 bytes.

These files are created by:
sapserverx:/var/tmp# ps -ef|grep 12143
    root 12143  3159  0  Dec 17  ?        46:58 /bin/sh - /usr/local/bin/bashbug
    root 20890 12143  5 10:43:48 ?         0:00 vi /tmp/bbug.12143/bbug1

The bug files are these:
sapserverx:/tmp/bbug.12143# ls -l
total 32
-rw-------   1 root       sys            973 Dec 17 17:07 bbug1
-rw-------   1 root       sys            973 Dec 17 17:07 bbug2
sapserverx:/tmp/bbug.12143# diff bbug*
sapserverx:/tmp/bbug.12143# cat bbug1

I never experience this before, in fact I don't remember getting the "bashbug" 

It seems it happened when my colleague did logoff:
sapserverx:/tmp/bbug.12143# last
adminxxx pts/0        Mon Dec 17 10:55 - 17:07  (06:11)

I don't know how he exit, what signal...

It is because of "trap '' 2" in the script "bashbug", isn't it?
Now that we've detected the problem we just kill the process and rm all trash, 
and everything is back to normal.
I send this mail to consider if it's too aggresive that trap. However it's the 
first time I saw this problem...
