Running the xdm binary and NetBSD 1.1B, I am really root as reported
by id -p and zsh's LOGNAME, that is: uid at login time. I first
noticed it when playing tetris, when the new high score was attributed
to root :)

This is strange.

I start xdm from rc.local, and I don't even have getty running on kd.
