Sorry for the delayed answer, I was in week-end with no computer access...
I think the problem is also in kdelibs. I am also the Debian packager of
Kwave, and I have seen it makes its own check in the /tmp directory on
startup (kde-... and mcop-...). It means, there was also problems with
this directory. I hope everything is fixed in KDE 3 :-)
Meanwhile, you could maybe report the bug against kdebase (the package
containing kicker), mentioning that it is maybe linked with the bug
#143339 in kdelibs.
