[Netkit.users] Announcement: Netkit release

Found a bug.

When I say, eg
   vstart pc1 --eth0=tap,,

I see the message:
    [: 1: yes: unexpected operator

and then I'm asked for the root password, instead of my user's password.

The problem is at line 271 of script_utils:
      if [ "$USE_SUDO" == "yes" ]; then

It should read:
      if [ "$USE_SUDO" = "yes" ]; then
