Therein, of course, lies the problem.  I have reorganized so that System
Tools contains all user system stuff that doesn't require root
privileges.  And I have put all Administration programs that require
root login/password in System => Administration.  At least that gives me
a sense of which changes are dangerous.

But the present set up is just hard to remember and makes no sense.
