Back in the 1.1 or 1.2 days there was this magic bug where the
permissions on /tmp would get screwed up -- they would become
-rwxr-xr-x or something like that. A lot of apps don't handle that very
well. X programs say they are unable to connecct with an error 111
or something like that (presumably because they can't create their
Unix domain socket in /tmp). Very ugly; I never found out what caused
it, but it went away in about 1.3.
