It's a common error, caused by KDE. It expects the boot scripts to create
this dir, and if there is none, it will mess it up.
The [KX]DM startup script should create that directory, check if it's
owned by root and chmod it to 1777. If it isn't, remove or rename the
directory and retry a limited number of times.
