I've changed the settings to allow setuid/setgid programs to work.  However 
man runs as the same security context as the user so isn't allowed to do 
anything you couldn't do.

Maybe I should just turn off the suid functionality in the man program, it 
doesn't do anything particularly useful anyway.

Also I've fixed the problem with /etc/shadow being readable by root (thanks 
James).  The first time I though I'd fixed it the process of changing a 
password relabelled the file, but I've fixed that now.

I do not get viruses because I do not use MS software.
If you use Outlook then please do not put my email address in your
address-book so that WHEN you get a virus it won't use my address in the
>From field.
