There are various ways to tackle this, either by changing root's home directory, or by doing some upstart magic at startup, but that wasn't the question of this thread.
Yes, I see that from your post.

But this is a Kindle Touch, isn't it? The one with so many trouble reports?

Perhaps the putting root's home directory into the /tmp directory that is subject to clean-ups is part of the source of those problems.

We should start a thread about moving root's home directory to somewhere that isn't volitale (sp?)
I can't be of much help yet - my serial adapter cable is still two weeks away.
