Basically these keep popping up after a reboot.  If I don't deleted them, 
things go fine, some of the time, other time it all goes wrong, KDE can take 
5 minutes to start and Xmms/libmpg123 fail to play.  This is all I have 
noticed, so far.

Anyway, it's things like the weird /tmp dir that are now worrying me.  I feel 
that the system initialisation suggestions in the book and in the hints are 
weak to say the least.  I fear my system will tear it'self apart if the house 
keeping don't start soon.  Can't complain though, it was a good book and I've 
learnt a lot.
