Sigh. Always google before stracing ... google reveals this:


which indicates that 1) the bug is more than 3 years old 2) its bitten
hundreds of people, 3) pam_systemd is "working as designed" : it is pulling
the user directory from the environment variable
XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/run/user/1000  (well, 500 in my case) 4) fedora  is in a
state of denial.

Probably need to close this bug, and instead do to things:
1) fix mate-stettings daemon so is doesn't blow through 16GB ram in 5
2) track down who set the XDG_RUNTIME_DIR env var
