Description Jens Petersen 2004-02-23 02:09:53 EST
Description of problem:
Currently the htt IIIMF server runs a root.  Since there are
security concerns for this client-server system, the server
should be run by a non-priveleged user.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. service IIim start
2. ps aux|grep htt$
Actual results:
root   9364  0.0  0.0  3068  272 ?    S  10:21  0:00 /usr/lib/im/htt

Expected results:
iiimf  9364  0.0  0.0  3068  272 ?    S  10:21  0:00 /usr/lib/im/htt

Additional info:
For comparison: Canna's cannaserver runs as user bin,
and FreeWnn's jserver runs as user wnn.
