Unless I'm mistaken, does it look like Centos 4.7
is missing an update released on December 3rd 2008? 

Upstream details :- http://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHBA-2008-0989.html

An updated tmpwatch package that fixes various bugs is now available.

The tmpwatch utility recursively searches through specified directories and
removes files which have not been accessed in a specified period of time.
tmpwatch is typically enabled and configured to clean up directories used
for temporarily holding files, such as, for example, the /tmp directory.

This updated tmpwatch package includes fixes for the following bugs:

* tmpwatch unnecessarily reported a "No such file or directory" error
whenever a file was deleted before tmpwatch accessed it. In this updated
package, tmpwatch correctly no longer reports such errors, thus resolving
the issue.
