I did, and even made it owned by root, but it still changed it. I think
it can do that because it renames the original file to channels.conf.old
and creates a new one. It stopped doing it after I made it a symlink to
the real channels.conf in /root, but now I've just realised why it was
able to overwrite the old file, I think this new "cure" shouldn't have
