Thanks, but I know nothing at all about this file, never heard of it. 
Looking for it:

"locate emacs.pdmp" returns nothing.

"rpm -ql emacs|grep emacs.pdmp" returns nothing.

So it appears I don't have it and never did.

Are these permissions etc. correct?

# ls -ld /var/games/emacs
drwxrwx--- 1 games games 50 Aug 16 15:50 /var/games/emacs
