Well...here is something "interesting".....

I started my F13 virtual machine, deleted the symlinks in /tmp and
powered off.  Upon reboot, I ssh'd in and found the following links
created at boot time.

lrwxrwxrwx. 1 gdm      gdm        28 Apr 14 20:16 4bc5b2054decc ->
/etc/cups/ppd/psc_2500:1.ppd
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 gdm      gdm        28 Apr 14 20:16 4bc5b20aeaad6 ->
/etc/cups/ppd/psc_2500:1.ppd

I then logged in to a GNOME session and the following links were now
there...

lrwxrwxrwx. 1 gdm      gdm        28 Apr 14 20:16 4bc5b2054decc ->
/etc/cups/ppd/psc_2500:1.ppd
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 gdm      gdm        28 Apr 14 20:16 4bc5b20aeaad6 ->
/etc/cups/ppd/psc_2500:1.ppd
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 egreshko egreshko   28 Apr 14 20:19 4bc5b2d29ac32 ->
/etc/cups/ppd/psc_2500:1.ppd
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 egreshko egreshko   28 Apr 14 20:19 4bc5b2e3bc9c6 ->
/etc/cups/ppd/psc_2500:1.ppd
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 egreshko egreshko   28 Apr 14 20:19 4bc5b2ec05d3f ->
/etc/cups/ppd/psc_2500:1.ppd
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 egreshko egreshko   28 Apr 14 20:20 4bc5b2f439f27 ->
/etc/cups/ppd/psc_2500:1.ppd
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 egreshko egreshko   28 Apr 14 20:20 4bc5b301486a8 ->
/etc/cups/ppd/psc_2500:1.ppd
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 egreshko egreshko   28 Apr 14 20:20 4bc5b30155095 ->
/etc/cups/ppd/psc_2500:1.ppd
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 egreshko egreshko   28 Apr 14 20:20 4bc5b30158ae3 ->
/etc/cups/ppd/psc_2500:1.ppd


On logout 2 additional symlinks are created/owned by gdm.  The first 2
are not removed.

Logged in again...and now there are 18 symlinks....

So, maybe we are both right...for different reasons?
