Not true... I got sudden freezes (presumably kernel panics, but could not
see any error messages) while just trying out GEM's DV camera support code
transplanted into GF. I wasn't in suid root not root login, just plain
user. That was in 2006 with some distro dated >= 2004. This is just
an anecdote, but this isn't something so unlikely, because it was a usual
kernel of a usual distro.
