On Redhat 6, wrong user may be logged for some GUI operations / BoKS daemons
There are 2 issues described in this article, both affecting Redhat 6:
1) If BoKS is started by hand on Redhat 6, certain operations performed in the administration GUI are falsely logged as
being performed by the user that started BoKS rather than the user that logged in for the GUI session.
2) If BoKS is Booted by a user on Redhat 6, logs from some BoKS daemons are reported with the name of that user
and not root.
These issues are caused by the system getlogin() function being changed in RedHat 6 to return the name of the user
originally logged in when starting the process. The corresponding uid is saved in /proc//loginuid.
