The man page for HP-UX 11.11 does not indicate the -n is optional :(

        -n s1          True if the length of the string s1 is non-zero.

Here is the results before the change (i.e. how I found the error).
# ./scripts/check_root

You are right, it did work properly under Linux, I just restested.

Thanks much!  I will try to grab a the current source tree from savannah
and start generating diffs against that tree instead of my local tree. 
I have registered as a developer and submitted my SSH1 key, so hopefully
it will work.

This will also be a good double check to verify I have sent all my
patches to you also :)

Thanks much!
