I doubt this will *make* you root. It will _do_ something
_as_ root (specifically: "nothing") and - upon finishing - go
back to being what you were before. The -i mainly serves to
more fully simulate your being root *during execution of

"whoami" should be able to tell you who you are.

Given that the workspace name does NOT start with a "/" I
would suspect the option WORK_DIR_BASE inside
/etc/gnumed/gnumed-restore.conf does not start with one
either ?
