Check out the Dropline forum . Did you delete /tmp after installing? I think some people also had trouble with /tmp permissions getting changed. That you'll have to look up. If it's the first, as root, this will fix it:

cd /tmp
rm -r *
rm -r .*
If it's the first, you'll have to search the Dropline forum. As I recall, it has something to do with the sticky bit, but I never had that problem so I don't really recall.
