Interesting. I'd still be interested in knowing if anyone is getting the
Ubuntu package maintainers' version working like it's supposed to: ACPI
shutdown/wakeup, WOL from remote backend/frontend, etc.  Seems like it's
broken running on the limited "user" account. I had ACPI shutdown/wake
working on the JYA repositories under 11.10, but I had to log out of my
user account to do it! Any Ubuntu packagers listening in?  What's going
on here?
