you should issue a "su <someUser>" before running your daemon, in your
daemon script. Running snaphshot code and unit test as root user is most
certainly a very bad idea, unless you have very good backups and don't
mind reinstalling that computer several times a day when some developper
makes a mistake manipulating a File("/") in a unit test :)

Thanks for your reply, David.

I just puzzeled out how to start continuum als a deamon from the help 
(outdated, since it describes the process for the previous version) on the 
site, and that is where I got.
I know that running as root is probably not the best idea, but I'm happy 
that the thing is running now. For now security isn't a concern yet.

Still, I appreciate the advice, and will act accordingly.
