Default Protected symlinks in kernel 3.6

With kernel 3.6 in testing, and with the new protected symlinks
feature being on by default, I wondered if anyone has seen any
problems running this kernel as a direct result of this new feature?

https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/10/3/473

It would be nice to know of any problems so that anyone running the
new kernel will be aware of places to look to change permissions (or
switch this feature off) ahead of installing the new package?

The author ran it for years with almost no problems so it has been
deemed easier to find problems by enabling it generally. If you want to
help, keep it on. If you just need to do your job etc. keep away for a
few months.
