Very strange! I've NEVER enabled root on this Ubuntu machine yet
webmin works perfectly fine for me (except, I forget what I set the
password to so I have to login via one particular web browser which
remembers my password ;-).

I did install WebMin from source back in 11/2004 when i was still
running Ubuntu Warty so perhaps that made a difference?
