They are pegged to the current directory (.) by default, but you can 
change that by passing in a --debugdir argument to the bucardo script, 

bucardo start --debugdir=/tmp

You can also add this to your ~/.bucardorc file:

Can't answer that one. On Linux systems, the rc.sysinit script should 
be removing the *files* of /var/run on boot, but not the directories.
Googling suggests this may be the job of init scripts? Anyone have 
an idea of best practices for this?
