Yes, not to mention netreceive...

Supposedly this should actually be OK though; Pd uses setuid to promote
its priority to realtime, then immediately sheds root privelige ala
seteuid(getuid()) so that there shouldn't be any way to exploit it.  Anyone
figures out an exploit, maybe you should just send me private mail so I can
close it and update Pd again.
