Correct permissions on /var/tmp

Well, I spent a fairly happy Xmas playing with my new toy.

In my last missive I described how I wanted to move stuff from /var to
/usr/var but I then ran into a problem with /var/tmp

Both X and gconf want to write temporary files there but there was a
permission problem.

To fix I did:

# chmod 777 /var/tmp

Can somebody tell me what the correct permissions for /var/tmp is?
