[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#685832: xfce4-sensors-plugin: xcfe4-sensors-plugin relies on a setuid hddtemp and recommends to setuid it

Just to press this issue again: every new user of xfce on wheezy who is
using the sensor-plugin gets that annoying message, at every login and
whenever she/he opens the viewer. On top of that, the message gives a
not recommended advice, thus the security tag.

I don't know whether the proposed patch works, or is the best way to
remedy this though. Please have a look at this patch. It would be nice
to even get this into wheezy, maybe within a point release, later.

thanks, Frank
