With ISC 2.0.2, eh?

How do you handle the fact that your root isn't root on the other
filesystems?  That is, you can't read the files!

The fix is to patch "nobody" in the kernel to 0 instead of -2.  That works.
Thanks to the unnamed person (by his request) who provided the hint.

Then it works.  Thank the Gods.

Now if the lock daemon would function.......
