Running startx fails as a non-privileged user


Running Sid with X 4.3.0.dfsg.1-10.

After running X as root, running startx as a regular user instantly
fails, saying that it can't move XFree86.0.log.old.

That obviously sounds like a file permissions problem, but I don't
know how to resolve it without granting a+w permissions to /var/log,
which would obviously be stupid!

Anyone have any ideas?  (I'm running as root now, which I want to
stop ASAP.)
