Base-files 3.4-1: Problems for users with Non-Admin. priv

I want to call again your attention on the fact that when /etc/profile

   chmod 1777 /tmp

the simple user (NOT Admin. priv) receives 

   chmod: changing permissions of `/tmp': Permission denied

even if he starts the standard bash-shell without the XServer activated!

i.e. the problem remains for the simple user who does not use X.

thank you.
