I can see several xses-rodrigob.XXXXXX files on /tmp, along with
files from ssh-agent, .X0-lock, .X11-unix, gconfd, orbit and others.

Yes, it is stupid, and should not be on /tmp. .X0-lock should be on
/var/lock (or /var/run). .X11-unix should be on /var/run or /var/state.
xses-rodrigob* should be on my home diretory (maybe .xsessions/).
And so one and so forth.
