hi all,

correct me if i am wrong.. but..
do you think, if we denied a shutdown after an su(1)
to root from a non-privileged user would be good...

i tried this same thing at home.. i builded it and
installed it.. works fine for me... the patch below
will allow a shutdown only be logging into root itself
and not by issuing an su(1) command to root.

this would be very good, i think if someone broke into
a normal user and was able to gain access into root
using su... (without a password..)

i am submitting a tar.gz file, which has the patch for
the shutdown.8 manpage, and shutdown.c located at..
