Dear library trying to protect me from

Dear library trying to protect me from myself: I know what I'm doing. I want to run as root. Please STFU and work.

I initially read this and was wondering "Why is Dan going to the public library to use a computer?"

Already running as root, the library was complaining that it didn't want to do what I was asking it to do while I was root.

The whole "being root" thing is a different whine, and... well... yeah, that's the way this particular setup is.
