[Dovecot] 9GB of messages in /tmp

Well, I have a brain-dead user (using Thunderbird 188.8.131.52) who just
won't listen when I tell them not to try to move 5000+ messages at one
time (or if deleting, bypass the Trash), and they managed to royally
screw up their maildirs...
I have two problems...
1. The /tmp directory has 9+GB in it... can I just rm tmp/* on that
directory without making this problem worse?
2. One of the directories they were moving now has 5 copies of a whole
bunch of messages...
I'm very dangerous when it comes to command-line work beyond really
basic stuff, and my scripting skills are less than inspiring...
Is there a relatively safe command-line way of finding all messages that
have more than one instance, and deleting all but the last instance?
