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.
