I believe that this is exactly what I pointed out earlier:

When using TDM, folder /tmp/tdesocket-global is created by root and users does 
not have access into this folder => it is the correct behaviour. But user 
cannot create there kdesktoplockcontrol:

[kdesktop_lock] Warning: unable to create control 
socket '/tmp/tdesocket-global/kdesktoplockcontrol-0'.  Interactive logon 
modules may not function properly.

When TDM is not in use, folder /tmp/tdesocket-global is created by first 
logged user, but it is wrong in principle.
