doc/manual.txt: Update note file naming scheme
We are now using hash-based note file names instead of mkstemp() (cf. commit 5c6a00ee93e54cc044aee5146e9fcfbcb732a2ee). Update the documentation accordingly. Also, add a note on the garbage collector we added in 8d71923d4f498c8d2fcb22a72346e3e77a7c4a5b. Signed-off-by: Lukas Fleischer <firstname.lastname@example.org>
