Bug#2082: X11R6: Everybody can remove the contents of /tmp/.X11-unix

Package: (X11R6)
Version: 3.1.2

Every user can remove the contents of /tmp/.X11-unix during an X11
session. If I try to start a new program then I get the following
error message:

TRANS(SocketUNIXConnect) () can't connect: errno = 2

The permissions of the .X11-unix should probably be changed from
rwxrwxrwx to a more restrictive mode (maybe with the t bit).

BTW: I'm using the following packages (a.out):

xbase            3.1.2-4
xstd             3.1.2-3
xlib             3.1.2-2
xs3              3.1.2-1
