Exclamation Re: nvidia-settings do not persist clone and panning settings

Ok well I think I figured out the problem.. This tool MUST be ran as root i.e. in superuser mode. It was installed as a menu item reachable via a normal user and is trying to modify the X11 config files. This tool should force the user to su to root before running, just like the Sax2 configuration tool does. IMHO this is a serious oversight and should be remedied as it leads to all kinds of confusion.

Marc..
