Me, I do believe that slock shall be targeting the aim of this program:
1) lock x11.

Ok, look my example, think about a student behind the rules of the admin.

In an ideal case, he compiles the slock, and he locks and it really works.

In the present case, he compile, and it crashes since he
shall ask the root pwd of the school /fix permissions (and improves
his last grades in physics, informatics,.... by the way) ;)


I quickly look the code before compiling, but I must say I shall look
in further details to fix this code.
