.ICEauthority file permissions

Hello list!

I have been using redhat/fedora for quite some time and now that I
have switched to kubuntu
I have found my distro of choice.

One small problem though.

I used to ssh into all of the machines on my local network and run yum
update from the command line
and apt-get update does not actually update the programs it just
fetches the packages.

If I run adept_updater from the shell with sudo then it changes the
ownership of the .DCOP* and .ICEauthority file
and my local user account then fails.

Any thoughts would be helpful
