How can I avoid system /tmp to be used when combining singularity and conda?

When using both singularity and conda the idea is that inside the singularity container the conda environment is being installed.
Some singularity instances are set to share the system /tmp with the containers.
This can lead to unexpected behaviour where the system /tmp gets full.
To stop this behaviour you'd have to run singularity with the ``--contain`` option.
