    Yes, but not in thes case ;)
    You have to drop privileges after calling bind, then the owner of
    the socket is set.

    The only thing an application can do right now is do a setfsuid, right?

    That solves the 'problem' right now. It could call setfsuid before
    socket and bind. inet_bind goes for the euid in capaple, not the fsuid.

    It's not pretty, but what the heck.

    Thank you for the patient answers.
