Could you define this a little better?  Is it always the user's
top-level directory which gets affected?  When a directory is
affected, are subdirectories always affected too?  What sort of
applications are you running?  When the effect happens, what sort of
uids do the file ownerships get changed to --- a different but
systematically consistent uid, or to a bunch of different random
values, or what?
