Solaris 10 JDS will not start for all users except root

The graphical interface (gnome-session) starts automatically for root.

Existing users and newly created users will not start: the graphical login screen comes up after a reboot, the login is accepted, but after a few wobbles, the screen returns to the graphical login.
If I choose the deprecated CDE works.

If I try to start gnome-session from a vncviewer, I see the following errors on the shell:
(gnome_segv:1658): WARNING **: Wrong permissions for /var/tmp/orbit-fkoutchouk

I do see such a directory:
drwxr-xr-x   2 fkoutchouk sysadmin     512 Apr  3 12:32 tmp

Hints:
- It did work correctly before I worked around disk space problems with /
- It works perfectly for root
Thanks!

Your best bet is to log off completely, log in as root through the command line interface and then go to /var/tmp and delete pretty much everything that looks like it has anything to do with JDS, GNOME, or X.
Double check the permissions on /var/tmp. Then reboot and try again.
