Well. Yeah.  Running as a kernel task is something you should only be
doing if there's no alternative, and is *supposed* to be difficult.

Unless of course your security model is "everything including the mail
program is a kernel task, and when we add normal users, we'll give them
full sys admin rights".  But that's crazy talk, nobody would be THAT
silly when they design their operating system....
