I cannot, mainly because it must be stated quite categorically that its vaporings are somewhere between a scam and a sham. Hence and therefore, by writing this letter, I am undoubtedly sticking my head far above the parapet.

What privileges are needed to write to /var/lock ?
On my SUSE-box, that directory is only group writable uucp.
We prefer to run screen without root-sbit whereever possible, so setting the Lock gets difficult. Any Ideas?
