As I found, nwsfind (for slist & etc), ncpmount and ncpumount need SUID
bit to be set to work properly for normal users. Because this is FAQ I
think that this bit should be set on files mentioned above (in RPM
package). I already asked P. Vandrovec (the developer of ncpfs) if this is
secure and he replied that it was. He knows NWDSCanonicalizeName and
NWDSAbbreviateNamethat functions are not safe but they are not used in
these utilities. So what do you think?

*** Bug 6609 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***nwsfind needs to be, and it's fixed in,
which will be in the next Raw Hide.
