it still crashes on standard user, like:

the reason is that you try to open system wide counter
and that's not allow for standard user.. so the thread
won't get started, but there's code to stop it unconsidtionaly
which crashes


the patch below fixes that for me, but I guess we want
to check if th eerror was -EACCESS, if not we should fail
