'Sound server fatal error' in aRts

I loaded a different kernel, and on going back to the previous kernel I got this dialog on booting into KDE:

Error - artsmessage

Sound server fatal error:
/tmp/mcop-rollo is accessible owned by user
I guess this would have something to do with the fact that JuK no longer starts up - but the sound server seems to be working correctly because RealPlayer plays sounds.

Any ideas what's going on..?

looks like a permissions access needs to be changed

Yep sorry, unnecessary post, this was a bit obvious wasn't it...

Since these are /tmp files I just deleted the entire directory. Seems to have done the trick.
