Good grief! It %^$#%ing works!

I knew it would be stupid-simple thing in the end but that really takes the biscuit, dunks it in spoon-dissolving tea and slurps it. 

I did have a bit of ‘fun’ since I managed to delete the /etc/pam.d/common-session file. Guess how much you can do without that in place. Luckily I had a spare uSD card so I could reboot the Pi (not politely mind you because… no common-sessions file), mount the prior uSD, copy a file across to the right place, swap back to the original uSD card. Sigh.
Still, with it back in place and edited and the system rebooted(again) I can now start squeak without using sudo. Yippee! That means I can simplify the shell scripts and stop worrying about the TestPiPriority stuff.

Thank you very much Dave.
