The klik client installation needs root privileges once, to add 7 lines 
like this one to /etc/fstab:

  /tmp/app/1/image /tmp/app/1 cramfs,iso9660 user,noauto,ro,loop,exec 0 0

We know this is ugly (and a big limitation) -- but once Kernel 2.6.14 with
FUSE will become more widespread, this will no longer be required.
