Comment:

 The sound configuration utility requires root permissions to run since
 it's sole purpose is to change the default sound device for the system.
 Once the system has been setup by an administrator, a "regular" user
 should have no need to access this utility. There is a new pc-mixer
 utility that is coming out soon for managing/controlling the user's sound
 settings. This utility should be used instead by a "regular" user.

 I just put a check in place on the pc-soundconfig utility to make sure it
 does not startup if run with user permissions - making this distinction
 clearly visible when starting up the utility from the command line.
