It's a log file which is meant to be kept during reboots (and e.g. used by
ck-history) so writing to a tmpfs is not a good idea.
The use case you are mentioning also sounds a bit artificial.
Usually when you switch consoles you are triggering reads/writes anyway.
Thus I'm marking the bug as wontfix
