+++ This bug was originally part of Bug #149693 +++
4. input: Only root should be able to set the N_MOUSE line discipline.
Routine used in setting line discipline on a serial tty. Note possibly the
wrong fix: http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg64695.html
Impact: a non privileged user could inject mouse movements or possibly
keystrokes when another user is logged in.
This is already in our tree. Dave, should be moved to MODIFIED, i suspect.
