Oh bother.  Yes, I suppose that's true, isn't it.

Well, that's the low-hanging fruit there then.

So here's the $64k question: if I'm running the backend SUID for realtime

(I realize it's not supposed to be necessary to do that anymore, but I 
figure this is a good time to ask the question, before I shut up. :-)
