Thanks a lot for the software, I just downloaded it and ran it. But I'm 
not quite sure what it does...

When I run

ktsuss id

and provide the credentials "timtas/password", the output is:

uid=0(root) gid=1000(timtas) groups=4(adm),..,119(fuse),1000(timtas)

, e.g. the groups of user timtas.

The uid is however root, which surprises me, as I specified "timtas" as 

So, I'd like to know what happens here. Unfortunately, there is no 
documentation whatsoever (apart from the source code...).
