Why does it want to use /tmp/mcop-<username> ? Shouldn't it be using 

Anyway, mcoputils is full with arts_fatal() calls which call "exit(1)" instead 
of reporting the error to the caller and letting the application continue

Wasn't there a patch for arts recently to let it use getpwent instead of 
getenv("LOGNAME") ? mcoputils still uses LOGNAME.
