Thanks, this should be fixed in SVN.

I tried to use "vserver [servername] suexec [username] [command]" in my startup scripts, but instead of running as the user I expected, the process ran as root within the vserver.

I learned that suexec takes a userid Number, instead of a username String. Since the usual result of pushing alphabetical characters through a convert-to-number function is 0, which is the userid of root...

Invalid parameters should al least return an error, not run with extra priviledges. =)
