Why a normal user? Is this a remote system in pain managed by myself
or is this my desktop system I happen to be logged on as a non-root
user?

I don't see multiple xterms as an argument to running diagnosics and
other utils as non-root. The only time I would like to become non-root
on these systems is to see whether there are any ACL issues with what
I just fixed.
