I mostly solved the su-to-root problem (causing links in the GNOME
menu for synaptic, etc, that need root to be unable to access root

I'll arrange it for new installs to get the fix automagically; for
existing installs:

1) add the following line to /etc/sudoers:

%sudo   ALL=(ALL) ALL

2) add your user to "sudo" group (adduser youruser sudo)

3) dist-upgrade

  The DRM opt-in fallacy: "Your data belongs to us. We will decide when (and
  how) you may access your data; but nobody's threatening your freedom: we
  still allow you to remove your data and not access it at all."
