kdesktoplockcontrol can never work

Hi all,

during the research around kdesktop_lock I found that kdesktoplockcontrol 
(formerly pipe, now socket) can never work. Pipe / socket is created in 
folder /tmp/tdesocket-global, but into this folder can enter and write 
only 'root'. The folder is created with permissions 0644, which is a bit 
unusual for the folders.

I also noticed (when I was allowed to write to the folder tdesocket-global 
also for others) that kdesktoplockcontrol and kdesktoplockcontrol_out are 
created but never removed.

Please can anyone confirm my findings?
How kdesktoplockcontrol was intended?
Currently obviously can never work.
