While I agree, something like /tmp/blahblah_$USER is a very common
solution to this issue.  A quick survey of my /tmp shows the following
things are doing it this way:

alsa
csdebug
gaim
gconfd
keychain
kde
ksocket
mapping
mc
mcop
mplayer
orbit
ssh-agent
xmms
xses

I can't even place where some of those are coming from!
