Replying to satellit:

Command needs to be sudo su for ubuntu not su

Probably rather "sudo -i". "sudo su" is using two different utilities to achieve exactly the same job (both sudo and su change the effective UID to root).

FWIW, we should consider getting rid of that button entirely and just include instructions in the motd message. Pressing the button kills any child process. I've accidentally hit it more than once.
