I've somewhat fixed this with the change 7cc9680c4be. Can you re-test that it
works without sudo? I think it's best to avoid it unless necessary and the
cs_etm//u seems to suggest that it's not necessary.

If 'proper data' can't be collected without root then it seems more like the
tests have found a real issue to fix rather than something to be worked around.
