Man, su ,and the pebcak virus.

It seems to much analyzation was going on, but if you look carefully at the 
original post the user typer man without any options, man then asked which 
man page you wanted, exited and gave a shell prompt back. It didn't ask a 
question and wait for an answer. The user then type su, thinking it was a 
question and man was prompting for an answer. Well as we all know if you type 
su at a command prompt without args your asked for root's password.
