You should be aware of one thing that isn't in my hpwto:  The /tmp
directory gets cleared periodically, so you will find that /tmp/.esd
directory will get removed.  You should compensate for this, either
manually or with some appropriate script that recreates the directory
if it is not present.  Annoying, but hey, workarounds always are...
