I've tried and tried to use the "suid root" trick on
my vanilla stock 0.16 KnoppMyth R4V5 box, and every
single time I make this change and restart
mythfrontend, BANG it hangs Linux HARD.  I can't even
get ssh going to shut down gracefully.  It's power
off, power on time.  What the heck is going on???
