I know that Apple's SoundtrackPro leaves a lot of temp files lying around t=
hat will need to be manually deleted after any editing session. Fortunately=
, for me, they appear on the disk that I use for copying the original files=
 on to, so they are easy to spot being AACs and I'm dealing with WAVs. You =
need to check your settings to make sure that you know which is the working=
 disk, or you'll end up with a lot of clutter. And some of them can get qui=
te large.
I believe that Reaper does the same, though I haven't used it recently to c=
onfirm this.

Does that mean you can make dozens of edit versions without using much more=
 space than the original file until you start rendering them? That sounds l=
ike a good think, especially when the final version is often only an mp3 fi=
le. Or is the space used by temporary files anyway?
