    /etc/cron.daily/tmpwatch:

    error: failed to unlink /tmp/ixed: ixed.lin.4.0.6.pxp
    error: failed to unlink /tmp/ixed: ixed.lin.4.1.2.pxp
    error: failed to unlink /tmp/ixed: ixed.lin.4.2.3.pxp
    error: failed to unlink /tmp/ixed: ixed.lin.4.2.ts.pxp
    error: failed to unlink /tmp/ixed: ixed.lin.4.3.2.pxp

    Go on, have a guess
    You will always get those from tmpwatch if you have set the immutable flag on the /tmp/ixed directory (i.e. chattr +i). The alternative is to use the ixed files that cPanel installs in the 3rdparty directory instead (have a look over on the Fantastico site/forums for details about that).
