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.
