The tickets 960 and 961 seem to have something to do with user privileges.

#960: Warden GUI does not delete jail and the files.

Comment (by geostar):

 I think that all of my issues are related to configuration of user/access
 permissions, that are set during initial installation of the OS. The local
 user is set automatically as user with administration privileges.

 Afterwards, all of my system-wide configuration was done in KDE, with
 password of the local user, that was created during initial installation
 of the OS. When I did any system configuration, I was asked to use
 password of the user with administration privileges, not root. Initially,
 I tried root password. But, the system utility would not accept it, as I
 thought it should. Though, it did take the local user password, with the
 admin. privileges - strange but true :)

 I'm just basing all that when compared to PC-BSD 9.1, which I currently
 use. Although local user is set to have administration privileges, in 9.1,
 it must use root password to do any su or sudo system-wide level
 operations, while in KDE desktop or otherwise.

 Please refer to my other ticket #964, with related issues.

 Please take a look at my other reply, with ref. to ticket #960

 In addition to that, I don't understand why and how was local user, with
 its user password, able to create jail using Warden GUI, which did happen
 in my case. Tho afterwards, I could not do much with that jail, using
 Warden's GUI, other than start and stop the jail :)

 And again, warden in CLI does require root/su/sudo access and root
 password to deal with its jails, but that's the norm for all other CLI or
 GUI system-wide configuration utilities.

 It took "warden delete myjail" in CLI to delete the jail.

 Yes, while in Wrden CLI, as su with root password, I used "warden delete
 myjail" - that's all :)
