Running pserver as root was already a broken configuration. This just
makes it more obvious. :-)
Seriously, if we were talking about 4.x I might have more sympathy,
but I believe this is an appropriate behavior to change in a 5.x
Apparently the CVS developers also felt this was an appropriate change
for minor point release.
Finally, there was overwhelming support for this change: over the past
month I've received several requests for it; and RE received several
requests to incorporate the change in 5.2.1.

I haven't seen an earlier mail on this subject from you... I guess I
could have missed it?
