[Slackbuilds-users] qt5-webkit issues

i've noticed a change in qt5-webkit; any applications that use it will 
fail if run as root,
unless you set QTWEBENGINE_DISABLE_SANDBOX=1 before running the executable
that uses it. It may be worth a comment, or something as binaries that 
used to run as root
will not any more without this environment variable set. it effects 
musescore 3.4.2, and possibly
gambas and others that use it (approx 23 packages).
regards, Tim
