I too was having problems with this after the upgrade last night.  It
seems that instead it wants: 

drwxrwxrwt    2 root     root         1024 Jun 24 10:37 /tmp/.X11-unix

Perhaps simpler, and what I did to fix the problem, is to rm -rf
/tmp/.X11-unix as root while X was not running.  My next attempt to
start X happily recreated everything in a way that it was happy with.
