My apologies, Samuel.

I realized this morning that I am running the desktop in Gnome Classic mode
and I see this:

$ ps ax | grep X
 1815 tty2     Sl+  250:50 /usr/lib/xorg/Xorg vt2 -displayfd 3 -auth /run/user/1000/gdm/Xauthority -background none -noreset -keeptty -verbose 3
22870 pts/9    S+     0:00 grep --color=auto X

and on my laptop running Gnome I see:

$ ps ax | grep X
28301 tty2     Sl+    0:00 /usr/bin/Xwayland :0 -rootless -terminate -accessx -core -listen 4 -listen 5 -displayfd 6
28910 pts/0    S+     0:00 grep --color=auto X

I then logged into Gnome Classic on the laptop and see:

$ ps ax | grep X
29206 tty2     Sl+    0:01 /usr/lib/xorg/Xorg vt2 -displayfd 3 -auth /run/user/1000/gdm/Xauthority -background none -noreset -keeptty -verbose 3
29968 pts/0    S+     0:00 grep --color=auto X

and as you might expect, running zenmap as root works as expected.

Thank you.  I learned something again today.  :-)  I had been previously
unaware that Gnome Classic actually runs under Xorg.  I'd seen the
"Gnome on Xorg" GDM menu entry but had never chosen it.
