WxFixBoot 2.0.2update1

UPDATE 20/3/2018: I can confirm that these packages work with Ubuntu 18.04 and Fedora 28.

This release provides security fixes and a few small bug fixes for v2.0.2.

Here is the security information for this release:

A security fix has been issued for this package. Only people who have been running the program on Wayland have been affected. After the program was shut, GUI applications could continue to be run as root, because the workaround wasn't being disabled properly until a reboot had occurred. See my corresponding blog post at http://www.hamishmb.altervista.org/blog for all the details.
