Only track 1.

An interresting followup on that one:

If I login as q-funk, then 'su root' and /drive/track01.prg, it
starts the track and doesn't boot me out of Bash. However, loging
in as root and typing this in the first-level (e.g. login) shell
kills the shell dead in its track.

No idea why, though.  Anyone?
