After the upgrade from -6 to -8, my X server refused to start with the
message "X client socket directory has suspicious ownership, aborting"
(or something close to that; "suspicious ownership" is correct).  My
/tmp/.X11-unix directory had ownership root.daemon. After removing at
re-running the X server, it worked, and the (newly created) directory
has ownership root.root.
