I am using XScreenSaver 5.36 on Debian Jessie.
I have setuid to sonar as mentioned in `man sonar` i.e.
chown root:root sonar
chmod u+s sonar
$ ls -ld /usr/lib/xscreensaver/sonar
-rwsr-xr-x 1 root root 104016 Apr 15 2016 /usr/lib/xscreensaver/sonar
Now, whenever I invoke sonar through xscreensaver by locking the
screen it still says "sonar must be setuid to ping" but interestingly
when I execute it directly as $ /usr/lib/xscreensaver/sonar it works
as expected showing the machines in LAN.
How can I make the sonar work when I lock the screen through xscreensaver?
