The Install Tool typo3temp tool allows deletion of files in typo3temp
OR typo3temp/subdirectory. As far as I know, the typo3temp delete
function in the install tool just deletes images. If I'm right -- and
if I'm not, somebody will probably say so -- you could just delete
them in shell (e.g. cd ~/typo3temp; rm -rf *.jpg). But don't try it
without verifying that nothing will break :)
