I think this problem has more to do with the way AIX and NV's security
interact or not (as the case may be) because after starting NV using id
help, I then get the NV login box and regardless of which userid I use
(including SrAdmin), I still get uncustomised maps. If I start NV using
root, and then login to NV (including help), my maps are as I expect them.
Tested this for every single userid known to NV. If I start NV (this is from
an AIX command prompt) using id help maps are crap, if I start it using
root, maps are OK.
