Summary: x11-wm/metacity-2.28.0 thinks gvim is running as superuser

Description Ian Abbott 2009-11-09 13:03:58 UTC
When gvim is launched without the -f ("foreground") option within the metacity-2.28.0 windows manager (e.g. by running it from gnome-terminal), the title bar of the window says "[No Name] GVIM (as superuser)", i.e. it thinks the program is being run as superuser when it is not.  I guess this has something to do with gvim daemonizing itself when the -f option is absent.

(Curiously, if you do happen to run it as a superuser, the title bar says "VIM" instead of "GVIM" but that's a separate issue.)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Running as a normal user, make sure the window manager is metacity-2.28.0.
2. Start a terminal.
3. Run 'gvim' and look at the title bar.

Actual Results:  
The title bar is tagged "(as superuser)".

Expected Results:  
It shouldn't say "(as superuser)".

This will need to be fixed by upstream as they have to decide if fix current support, drop it completely...
