i observed something similar too - the reason why logging in is not
really possible is the existence of some .ICEauthority-* files -
simply removing them should fix the problem - so there is no magic
here - the locking seems to be done pretty trivial via some kind
of normal files


p.s.: i hope i got the content of the question correct - i'm trying
      to catch up the lists now and might have gotten something
      wrong - if so - please forgive me :-)
