turning of the suid bit works *mostly*
of course don't expect to be able to run openwindows :-)
This is not entirely true.
The set-uid "loadmodule" program is called by openwin *only* if
you start it with the -nosunview option.
If you don't call it with the -nosunview option, you should
be ok w/o loadmodule, provided you install the sunview stuff
on your system.
Alternatively, you can load the modules from /etc/rc.local
at system boot time.
