First of all, thanks so very much for all the great work you've done, it feels good to be back after more than a year.
Second, i want to report something, i have searched already to see if its out there but looks like its not.
Its an issue with the root password being bypassed locally in the BT 5 R3 distro.
If you add a cronjob to start the X server after the server reboots, the PC boots up WITHOUT any password righ to the desktop with root privileges.
When this happens the shell i get is a "sh#" shell, instead of a "root@bt" shell.
After you start doing a few things, then it sort of stops, everything stops, i guess something to do with the server.
Hope this helps.
