There have been reports from people who want to run
VDR as user 'root' and have trouble with access rights
when using "-u root".

The attached patch simply skips all the SetCaps() and SetUser()
stuff when VDR is started as 'root' and the option "-u root"
has been given. This should then behave just like older versions.
