Since it would take a root privileged process to do this--the only culprit can be ksensors which is run sudo to get disk temperature measurements. Realizing this, I put a sleep before the sudo ksensors so that other older applets such as knemo, kalsamix or such would start dcop first. This had been OK, but ...

Since I cannot prevent kmix from coming up and I can get everything on its mixer pane as kalsamix, I am not starting that. knemo, apparently does not use dcop (in a way effect this). Kboincspy is for whatever reason not coming up usually and to start it manually after the ksensors, I have to change the permissions on the .ICEauthority. The dcopserver is running as root (and with root privileges does not really care about who owns .ICEauthority).

I wish KDE stuff would not change permissions of files. I had this before with kmail when trying to let another login look at my mail. If I set them wrong, this is my problem. If I set them sensibly, changing them is a bug which I cited a long time ago :)
