Bug#367993: openssh-server: /etc/init.d/ssh start does not signal error for UID > 0

Package: openssh-server
Version: 1:4.3p2-1
Severity: normal


    foo@host:~$ /etc/init.d/ssh start
    foo@host:~$ echo $?
    foo@host:~$ id -a
    uid=1000(foo) gid=1000(foo) groups=44(video),1000(foo)


The service start script

1) Should return error (cannot commence any command non-root)
2) Display error message, that user does not have privileges
   to run the command

Add error checking to the service script. Compare this to

    foo@host:~$ /etc/init.d/shorewall stop; echo $?
    You must be root to start, stop or restart "Shorewall firewall".
