Martin,

Something else that concerns me about this bug is that after I was removed
from 'admin' and did not have had admin rights I was able to change root's
password via the User/groups management. I had to do this to be able to su
to root so I could add myself back to 'admin'.  At the time figured I'd try
it since it was easier than booting the Live CD.   However I should not be
allowed to change root's password, even if I am an admin user.

I can write this up as a separate bug.

thanks,

David Green
