Description Toni DiBoulda 2004-02-14 14:24:23 UTC
traceroute is a standard util and users expect it working. After world update,
it is executable for members of wheel group only. Are there any known issues 
to justify this really drastic change? All UNIX systems I saw make traceroute
executable for all. If restricted to group, wheel group is by far the worst
possible choice imaginable.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. traceroute somehost

Actual Results:  
permission denied

Expected Results:  

sorry cannot reopen #34477
