Perhaps you're using some protection/privilege management system
(AppArmor, SELinux, something else) that restricts internet access to
the application running under root... but mysteriously doesn't restrict
it when it is running under your account???
Is your account member of some group that has "all network access
allowed" permissions, while root isn't?

Just a long shot from somebody who occassionally touches a Linux VM,
