First off, the -w wouldn't protect against a forensic (or a very good) disc scanning util unless the data wasn't there for very long and it's overwritten quite alot (6 seconds doesn't seem anywhere near long enough).
There is nothing better then an encrypted filesystem - which stores the data AND directory structure... Except maybe remembering your data - seeing as how they have yet to create a machine to read directly from your brain.
