Yup, go ahead and pop my noobie balloon!

I understand what you are describing, but my response is to act like the proverbial deer in the headlight beam. Or go glassy eyed like a baby filling its diaper. :)

All I want to accomplish with the patches and two bug reports:

* Move both .kompmgr.available and out of $HOME to $TDEHOME/$TDETMP (non persistent) or $TDEHOME/$TDEVARTMP (persistent). Or /var/run. Or $TMP. Anywhere appropriate other than $HOME.

* Silence the xsession output "reading '/home/users/username/' as kompmgr pidfile" when kompmgr is not enabled.
