According to the File System Standard, files in /var/run may be removed
when the system is re-booted.  I don't think that is appropriate for
the diald command fifo.

The diald man page says:
     "... the best security  is  probably  obtained  by
     creating  the  FIFO's  ahead  of  time and choosing
     appropriate owners and permissions rather than  let­
     ting diald create them."

It's rather inconvenient if the fifo is always getting removed.
