5 Paul gave an advice which the OP can use or drop to his own needs. I
6 personally am gratefull that there are people like him that inform others
7 about these situations. If the OP has a valid reason for mailing as root,
8 then he will certainly *not* be offended by Paul's mail. And if he didn't
9 know about the security concerns, he will probably be gratefull for the
10 comment, or in the worst case ignore it.
12 Nevertheless, even if it was off-topic and probably should be mailed in
13 person instead of the mailinglist, it is still constructive.
15 Wkr,
