#1405: Can't run some X python scripts due to access restriction to /tmp/.PCDM-...

     Type:  System Defect               |     Status:  new
 Priority:  minor                       |  Milestone:
Component:  Misc                        |    Version:  10.0-RELEASE
 Keywords:  PCDM Xauthority XauthError  |
----------------------------------------+--------------------------
 When running some graphical python programs they at first error out with
 something akin to

 File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/Xlib/xauth.py", line 46, in
 __init__
  raise error.XauthError('~/.Xauthority: %s' % err)
 Xlib.error.XauthError: ~/.Xauthority: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/tmp
 /.PCDMAuth-1036a8dc140c1f6d5bc1'

 I need to chown that .PCDM file to my username for the programs to run. I
 don't know if that is a dangerous workaround or actually supposed to be
 that way.

 I don't recall such problems under other DMs.
