It's not the creation of this directory that's amiss, it's the 
ownership. /tmp/.ICE-unix should have root ownership, x creates it belonging 
to the user who started x, which is potentially dangerous (and reportedly 
slows down some operations). If you log all output from x, you should see a 
warning about this somewhere.
