[Condor-users] A Horrible Condor Bug! :-)

Hello All (and Condor Team),

Our master machine is running
jeff@shark:~/poly/porta/galaxy62$ condor_version
$CondorVersion: 6.7.2 Sep 27 2004 $
$CondorPlatform: I386-LINUX_RH9 $
(We will hopefully upgrade soon)...

When I try to submit a vanilla job to our pool, I get...

jeff@shark:~/poly/porta/galaxy62$ condor_submit run.condor
Submitting job(s).
Logging submit event(s).
1 job(s) submitted to cluster 13.

WARNING: File /home/jeff/poly/porta/galaxy62/porta.out is not writeable
by condor.

WARNING: File /home/jeff/poly/porta/galaxy62/porta.err is not writeable
by condor.

The horrible bug is that "writeable" is misspelled.  :-)

Actually, I am writing to see if someone can help me figure out how our
configuration is wrong and why the vanilla job will not write to the
files /home/jeff/poly/porta/galaxy62/porta.out.

In the StarterLog, I see an entry...
3/25 16:12:14 Starter running as 'condor', no uid switching possible

This certainly is the crux of the problem, no?
I didn't do the install, so I am not sure what our SysAdmin did to have
the Starter run as "condor".  I want it to run as root.

I logged in as root and did a "condor_restart -all", but that didn't do
the trick -- I still get the "Starter running as 'condor'" message.

Can someone suggest the fastest way to "fix" our installation, so that
condor can do the requisite UID switching so things are happy in the
vanilla universe?  Or is there something else that might be wrong.
(UID_DOMAIN looks OK to me...)

Thanks in advance!
