5.10 boot up issue

Due to an unfortunate circumstance I learned of this only five minutes ago.
The existence of a root owned ".ICEauthority" after a rather rude 
shutdown in the home directory of a user.
This causes (as I am sure you all know) a less than 10 second login.
Should this file be checked for in all ~username/ directories and 
removed without question?
It should only impact a very small percentage of users but that in 
itself is bad.
