The problem is actually explained in this message, albeit probably not the 
clearest explanation in the world...  CONDOR_IDS needs to be a UID,GID 
*pair*, separated by a ".", so you probably want something like 
CONDOR_IDS=2000.100 (for example).

Note that if there is a valid "condor" user, Condor will, by default, use it.

Hope this helps
