Yep, that's what it is.  Can you please do me a favor.  Either create a 
.adanaxis dir under your home and see if that works.  If not, look at 
/usr/share/games/adanaxisgpl/start.txt.  There is an entry in there 
called setcachepath.  Try moving "/tmp" in front of $HOME to see if it 
will create it in /tmp.  If this works I'll create a patch.
