Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2007-07-06 18:29:57 EDT
The problem is that gnome-screenshot leaves behind a /tmp/gnome-screenshot
directory and tries to create a temp file there. That fails if the directory has
the wrong permissions, because it was left behind by a gnome-screenshot in
another session. It seems there is some cleanup logic which fails to work.

I guess this change broke it:
