This may apply to anyone running under linux but I've experienced this only
on Ubuntu 11.04 so far.

If you're experiencing a problem that everytime you launch LiveCode it asks
for authentication again, it is possible that your .runrev folder on your
home folder has the wrong permissions or owner. If you execute the installer
with root priviledges (so that it can write to /opt) then there is a chance
that the .runrev folder owner will also be root:root. You will need to
change that to the actual user and group running LiveCode or it will fail to
save your activation or your preferences.
