There are two issues, that I would like to be fixed.

1) Delete garbage on exit. John said he would look into this, quote:
  - create a directory under /tmp when C-Reduce starts up
  - set a couple of common environment variables such as TMP and TMPDIR
    to point to this dir, hoping that all of the tools we care about
    will respect one of these
  - nuke this dir upon exit

2) Abort when the size of a testcase reaches 0 bytes.
   This can happen when reducing big -flto testcases with multiple
   preprocessed input files. Right now creduce keeps creating new files
   in /tmp in a tight loop until one hits Ctrl-c.
