Yeah. I think that was about the time I discovered K3B or maybe I just 
downloaded the tarball and installed it. :-) Don't recall, as it has been 
several years. Just that it annoys me that this sort of thing happens... 
stuff that *used* to run just fine under normal user accounts gets changed 
without any fanfare or notification that it now requires special privileges 
to run.

I also made a note of it on the boinc.berkeley.org wiki that someone needs 
to make this warning and work-around (which they publish as well) more 
prominent if this sort of thing is going to be going on. I figure it's their 
product and if they are aware of it and/or endorse the policy, they ought 
to publicize it.
