I cannot get fdisk to run as any user other than root, even
if the non-privlaged user is in groups root and bin.
Is this a bug or a feature? Meesa thinsa feature :-)
An strace shows that there is an internal uid == 0 check even if
the user is in group disk (needed for /dev/sda group rw access on the
machine I was running on).
