This happens to me, but they go away once you close word (well they do on word 2003)
I have never tried deleting them (but ill try right now with a sample word document)
OK i tried it, but i only get one temp file and its not renamed .tmp, its just the word document with a tilda (~) in front of it and hidden. It deleted itself once i closed word.
I would just ignore them, and if they really annoy you, go into Folder options and uncheck "Show hidden files"
Ghost-looking file icons means that the file is hidden, so if you view these types of files, then you have hidden files shown.
