    What _is_ it with people who run other peoples C programs as root
    without looking deeply into what they do? I'm surprised you had an
    uptime that big ;)

    Now, the obvious thing to do was to test it as a normal user: never
    _ever_ test as root unless you have to.

    And if you tested as a normal user first and wondered why it kicked you
    out to the login prompt, the first reaction should _not_ be "Oh, cool, I
    wonder what that does if I run it as root" ;)
