It was not easy to me to understand the logic behind the gadget first
time I fired it up. Sudoers bridged two worlds the way I didn't expect.
I simply stoped to compare 770 to desktop and all ghosts gone. Now I
see Chris' attempt as an effort to free the hidden power. He probably
changed so many files' permissions and ownerships, that he could not
recall it even under hypnosis. I assume that might be easier to trouble-
shoot from command line, starting from brand new bora. One step at time.
If root has "/root" and "/user/root", it could bring headache to apps,
that don't have environment variables set. Finally, yes, I see a lot of
restrictions as ass savers.
