Description of problem:
gconfd stores personal lockfiles in /tmp. After a change of uid and chown of
home directory, user can't log in using the graphical interface any more

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
change user id, chown home directory, try to log in

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create user
2. log in
3. log out
4. change uid
5. chown home directory to new uid

Actual results:
graphical log in hangs, can only be fixed when root removes file in /tmp

This is a long standing problem that we have fixed in rawhide, but probably
won't fix in earlier releases.
