You probably have something that cleans up stale files /tmp on bootup.

Dunno if this works with ext3 but with ext2 (I keep my /tmp as ext2 for
speed... it's small and doesn't really need to be ext3 IMO) you could
run the mc command (midnight commander). it has undel features (man mc).
also, you might wanna try some undel software on the vfat partition out
of dos.  All this depends on you not writing to the partition involved.
