In the same vein as yesterday's email regarding not running the DHCP server
as root, Martin Pitt of Ubuntu fame also submitted a patch to not run the
client as root.

Details are at http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=308833

Again, my personal preference is for this sort of stuff to get rolled in
upstream, and for the Debian packages to merely reflect what upstream is

(Maintaining the Cc of this email will ensure our bug tracking system is
kept in the loop)
