Yesterday's python2-keyring upgrade seems to have messed up bitmask.

[kete@lbrbtprbl ~]$ bitmask

Also, Bitmask is run by the normal user, not as root.

Ok, thanks, fair enough, when I saw sbin, I thought of programs that have to run as root, and I remembered that OpenConnect—another VPN client—is ran by root.

/usr/sbin is just a symlink to /usr/bin. It created errors if I didn't move it. Also, what does it have to do with running as root or OpenConnect?

It seems like sbin was the correct destination since OpenConnect also runs as root:

OK, managed to patch the package up, should now fully work.

NOTE: until 0.9.2 (which should release in the next few days) communications with servers won't work (so no VPN/email) because of an upstream problem.
