URSim in offline simulator 5.4 not given root access in VM anymore


We had some issues with the latest offline simulator. It seems to be a change in functionality where in the offline simulator the ursim seems to have lost root access. The URSim was given root access by default during startup of the ursim in VM versions up to and including 5.3.

Is this an intended feature?

The consequence is that in the simulator, the daemon does not start unless I start it as sudo.

EDIT: After installing ursim5.4 in the VM that came with ursim5.3, it works. It seems to be some changes in the VM given with 5.4 which denies the daemons to run unless I explicitly start it as sudo.
