If that is the case then my entire VNC session must be running as root
rather than user pi...

I have no idea how this happens since I only connect on the IP:5900
socket and the desktop is displayed on which I start Lazarus from the
Menu. There is no user login required where the active user is set.

But if I open a terminal from the menu in the VNC window it shows it
is running as root...

I have to check with the RPi forum on this VNC problem.
