Make sure your program does not execute the setuid or exec functions or invoke another program that does, for example, rsh. Normally, the operating system does not allow a debugger to debug a setuid executable nor allow a setuid system call while a program is being debugged. Often these operations fail silently. To debug setuid
programs, log in as the target UID before starting TotalView.
