But have you used any of the programs installed by shadowpwd? I think the 
normal way of doing things is to be root from the beginning of chroot to 
the edn and to not even have any other user to su to. It would be very 
interesting if someone here could try using the shadowpwd su in chroot 
while running X on the host system to see if the problem is normal. 


Where...the ENIAC is equipped with 18000 vacuum tubes and weighs 30 tons,
computers in the future may have 1000 vacuum tubes and perhaps weigh just
1-1/2 tons.
