No - /root is the culprit.
Look at all those .something directories inside /root. They are created when
you run an application as root and it wants to save data inside the user's
home directory. For normal users their home directory is /home/username but
for root the home directory is /root.
Check if you actually need any of that data thats hanging around in /root. I'd
be very surprised if you actually did. Folders like .slypheed and .GNUstep
could most likely be removed I suspect.
