Various things get crippled now, in the name of avoiding
`shooting self in the foot' accidents by neophytes. So maybe
if you're running at a higher kernel security level you
might need to turn that off. Don't know how though, I never
cripple my root access. (& similarly hate eg fdisk -a being
similarly crippled by sysctl, in the same name of neophyte
foot shooting prevention )
