I understand that there is sometimes the need for lifetime long suid
programs.  Although, I don't think that it is a sensible approach to
write software this way (instead of using helpers like userv), I can add
a hack to disable dropping of permissions.

Ansgar, is it that what you want?



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
