The GNOME Corba bits create stuff sockets in /tmp/orbit-username that are  
used by the various processes involved to communicate. If you delete them the  
best thing to do is logout of your gnome session and login again as most of  
the stuff will break miserably.
In fact, cleaning /tmp is best done from console or single user mode (in the  
older days bigger systems cleaned /tmp on boot) as lots of apps use it and it  
may lose data.
