As I just found the solution, I'm coming to give the final solution.
I realized I hadn't yet STFW! and the answer came out from this link:
http://www.exgobz.com/article.php3?id_article=30

that says the /home/user permssions must additionnaly be 700.
But not recursively. So did I:
#chmod 700 /home/myself

and I rebooted. Surprise! the error message is not present at boot 
anymore! I'm jumping to the ceiling, happy and all!  :))

Peter, The permissions on the .dmrc file here are 644. On the laptop 
they are
-rw------- (600) I think, such as yours.
Best greetings, Joyce Markoll.
