Bug #28

The canfield game in bsdgames doesn't check if dropping privs can fail - see http://blog.infosectcbr.com.au/2018/02/infosects-month-of-pointless-bugs-3.html

       if (uid < 0)
                uid = 0;
        dbfd = open(_PATH_SCORE, O_RDWR);

        /* Revoke setgid privileges */
        setregid(getgid(), getgid());
