I didn't have bad ownership on this file, but I checked the other files 
with a 'ls -la -R /home/user' and I found a few belonging to root, which 
were belonging to root since quite a time already (not needing to use 
them as user momently and didn't think about them)

Anyhow I tried your command line, but unfortunately, even with all the 
files in /home/user belonging to me, after a reboot the error message is 
still in there.

Could it be a bug hidden somewhere in one of gdm's configuration files ?
Do someone else have any idea ? (not too bad, but slightly annoying... )
Thanks, Joyce Markoll.
