Perhaps even simpler that I read about:
modify the plist to point the VM file to a nonexistent directory - the
result is the same as below, without changing permissions.
The easiest way to modify that plist (a System Daemon) is by using
Lingon, but using any plist editor, or even a plain text editor,
should work, and might even result in changing the permissions at the
same time!
By the way, I would think that repairing permissions - a useful
management tool from time to time, esp. prior to system upgrades or
after multiple app installs - would change that plist file's
permissions back to their correct form, and so my suspicion is that
the "permission-only" hack would be undone, while leaving the "bad-
directory" hack still functioning...
