What's the permissions of the /tmp directory?  I've seen that sort of
thing in prior releases, because there was a problem there.

[tim at suspishus ~]$ ls -dl /tmp
drwxrwxrwt 53 root root 4096 2009-03-03 01:01 /tmp

         ^ that "t" being crucial, as well as rwx for all the others.

[tim at localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
