Does UT2004 need to run suid root for multiuser support?
When I start  UT2004 from screen, this is the error I get:

Must run suid root for multiuser support

I run another game from screen and it does not give me that error though I 
cannot reattach to the screen session.

This is the script I used:
screen -A -m -d -S /home/games/UT2004/System/ucc-bin server 
ini=ut2004.ini -nohomedir log=utserver.log

It is all on a single line in the shell script.
