[kde-solaris] Help with /tmp/.ICE-unix relocation (non-root)

So I installed KDE 3.1.1a on a solaris machine that I don't have root
access too. It took a bunch of work, but it works great now... If you
log into it before someone else has a /tmp/.ICE-unix dir on the system.
Something else (Xsun maybe) creates that dir 775 when a user first logs
in. That keeps any other users from being able to log into kde (more
specifically start dcopserver) because it tries to make sockets in that
directory. I've read that is a known bug in solaris, and other people
have written that they do things like set root cronjobs to maintain the
permissions of that directory. Obviously I can't do that. So most
likely, I am looking for either an environmental variable that puts the
dcop sockets in another directory, or a relatively easy way to modify
the source to pick another directory.
By the way, is kde-nonlinux mailing list dead?
