Description Joe Orton 2007-08-22 16:27:01 UTC
Description of problem:
The idea of the "nobody" user is that no process on the system runs as this user.
Daemons should not be configured to run as the "nobody" user by default; doing
so is a security risk.

Hi Paul,

Patch against cvs devel attached, which fixes this.
