well, I have things working, but it's a bit of a hack.

What I really want to do is launch Perl-Server, running as user nobody,
from my init scripts (I use the Perl-Server extensively in my CGI
development). So, I put together a setuid wrapper to launch the gimp,
but I don't see any way of detaching the gimp process from the
controlling terminal so that I can background it without terminating the
gimp. Any suggestions, or is this a feature which may be added at a
later date? ;)

right now I have to leave the setuid wrapper as the last item in my
rc.local and leave the rc.local script running.
