Bug#433996: xsabre: /tmp/sabre.log is left; blocks other users.

Package: xsabre
Version: 0.2.4b-23
Severity: important

When you run XRunSabre, it leaves /tmp/sabre.log .
This file has you as the owner and your default permissions.

Typically, no one else can remove or overwrite it.

The next person who runs XRunSabre then has trouble,
because the actual simulator will not start when that
file exists and is unwriteable.   You can use the menus,
but when you start a mission, it terminates silently
without explanation.
