Amr, I don't know about your case specifically, but in Christopher's
case, it was because he was restoring to two different users' home
directories. Basically, anytime you are restoring outside your own home
directory, we go to root. We *could* try to be smarter there, but it
would be a fair amount of effort for (imho) small gain. But you're right
that it would be better if we were that smart.
