Description Nathan G. Grennan 2002-08-12 15:40:29 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.5 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020712

Description of problem:
I login to the console as a non-root user, run screen, run startx, ctrl-alt-f1,
use ctrl-a d, exit, and ctrl-alt-f7. At this point I am in X, but the sound
device files dsp, dsp1, mixer, and mixer1 are owned by root and not my user. I
am using screen to log the X session without being logged in. If I used gdm
XFree86.0.log would be overwritten on logout.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. login to console as normal user
2. run screen
3. run startx
4. ctrl-alt-f1
5. ctrl-a d
6. exit
7. ctrl-alt-f7

Actual Results:  Sound device files owned by root

Expected Results:  Sound device files owned by user running startx in screen
