I'm running RH 7.1 (w/ Linux 2.4.2) on a Toshiba 2755 DVD Laptop. It's dual-booting with Windows 98 SE.

Whenever I create a new user, run KDE under the new name, and then exit I find that the file .DCOPserver_myhostname_:0 in the home directory is missing. The file contains information about the DCOP server (mainly the process ID). The file is not absent when I'm actually running KDE for the first time as that user. Only when I log out does the file dissapear forever. I can only tell it's missing when I do "ls -la". The symlink to the file is flashing red indicating that it's target is missing. Has anyone ever had this problem before? Note that when I try to run KDE again, it starts up fine. Thanks in advance.
