Nothing wrong with running other apps if they don't cause trouble. I was

Agreed... Well, I suppose this is reason to convince my dad that we need one 
with serial/usb support in linux!

Anyway, I hate to fix things in such a... seemingly "temporary" way, but I

The next question is, are these scripts run as root?
