Same goes for kde-cache under /var/tmp.

A quite simple solution could be to append the uid after the username to avoid 
any clash.

It will just leave some garbage on the disk. But, of course, if another user 
is created with the same uid, he will be able to read those files. But this 
is definitely not KDE fault !
