When I try to read tracks as a non-root user with XCDRoast, I get the 
following error, how do I resolve this.  Thought it may be a cdda2wav 
problem but I have no problems running cdda2wav from the command line.

xcdroast error:
recording 264.2533 seconds stereo with 16 bits @ 44100.0 Hz ->'/usr/
Fatal error:  did not drop root privilege.
child reader sem request failed Child exited with 2

I am running FreeBSD 4.8-STABLE with
xcdroast 0.98aplpha14
cdda2wav Version 2.00.3 from the cdrtools-2.0.3 package
