(I was just triggered to look into this a bit by an IRC conversation,

Is the tmpfile cleaner perhaps regularly removing /tmp/xauth* ?
kdeinit[45] sometimes seems to store the xauth tokens into
/tmp/xauth-$uid-_$distplaynum, instead of using ~/.Xauthority (though only for

before. And for some processes it instead uses
/tmp/kde-$username/xauth-$uid-_$displaynum (I don't know based on which

I guess if the tmpfiles cleaner comes and removes those files some things
