Bug#567572: opencryptoki: root is not added to pkcs11 group

Subject: opencryptoki: root is not added to pkcs11 group
Package: opencryptoki
Version: 2.2.8+dfsg-3
Severity: important

*** Please type your report below this line ***

opencryptoki uses GID rather than EGID to test if the user is allowed to initialize PKCS#11 tokens.

The easiest way to work around is to add root to the pkcs11 group in postinst (directly after the group is created):

adduser root pkcs11

System Information is from an Ubuntu Lucid Alpha 2 installation, but the ubuntu isn't modifying the package, so I'm hoping it can be fixed in debian, and then re-merged into Ubuntu.
