This patch (to be written) is somewhat related to patch #2827. Patch #2827 is
about attacker intentionally installing "./ser" to be run. This patch is
against accidentally running wrong program due to namespace conflict. "ser" is
definitely not a kind of program name that we can be sure not to exist in any
other software in the world.
Idea is to rename "ser" as "fcser" to reduce risk of namespace conflict, and
for consistency "civ" as "fcgui".
