Since I upgraded -by the net from the last prerelease- I live with a 
permanent error at login. A message tells me 'The permissions of your 
$HOME/.dmrc are being ignored and prevent it from keeping the default
lang and session. The file should belong to user and have 644 permissions'.

At the beginning I had the message in english. I checked the points 
given by the message then next login I had the same message... in french
(my language and locales).

On the laptop I had the same message but one of the following updates 
fixed it. Updates on the desktop didn't do anything.

I tried diverse tricks, put the permissions back as they are on laptop,
640, add some informations about the locales, in the file, put it back 
as before, have 'gnome' as session, have 'default' as session, and even 
through the file in the basket : the message is still there !

Do someone have a suggestion ? what could I lookup ?
Thanks, Joyce Markoll.
