Whenever a program locks up the machine, das_watchdog will temporarily
sets all realtime process to non-realtime for 8 seconds. You will get an
xmessage window up on the screen whenever that happens.

Das_watchdog is made to be run as a system daemon and does not interfere
with normal operations (unless the lock-ups are supposed to happen).

Das_Watchdog is inspired by the rt_watchdog program
made by Florian Schmidt (http://tapas.affenbande.org/?page_id=38).

Changes 0.2.5->0.3.1
*Changed scheme for finding correct XAUTHORITY environment variable.
  (Now works with Fedora Core 6)
  Hopefully, theses changes should increase the chance of seeing the
  xmessage and avoid seeing multiple ones. (Theres no correct way to do
  this, so please send me the output of "uname -a" in case you don't see
  any window)
*Added syslogging.
*Added the --version argument.
