TimeSlider must not need "Root" Password
If you login for the first time. you can su and change your password.
That's a fine thing, indeed.
Problem: Seems that the binary from the new TimeSlider is opened with root rights..
A normal user shouldn't work with root... on the desktop ;-)

- Status changed from New to Rejected
time-slider has always relied on root privileges which were provided through the "Primary Administrator" profile assigned to the user created during installation (and as currently this unsafe has been changed and tools requiring elevated privileges are executed through su which asks for the root password it could be argued that security has actually improved).
The problem that the password for root is marked expired will be addressed for oi_148, see the related bug #204.
