Hm, that is true. It can be solved by either

        - putting the PostgreSQL data onto
                - local storage
                - RAM disk
        - applying a RAM based union file system to the /var/ data

        - see above

        In 0.9 we go a large step towards supporting that:
        GNUmed 0.9 will create a temporary directory
        /tmp/gnumed/ and each GNUmed instance will create its
        own temporary directory below that
        (say,/tmp/gnumed/gm-yl5cD-tmp/). Since compiling LaTeX
        into PDF is done inside the temp dir and the temp dir of
        a live CD really should live in RAM or local writable
        storage this should automagically make documents work
        from the live CD.

        This is true for all other functions which use local
        storage (document viewing, measurements plotting, etc).
