This bug was filed in hedeby's issuezilla, but it definitly a gridengine bug.

During the hedeby installation the ca certs are fetch from the CA component. For
user authentification the utilbin/<arch>/authuser binary will be used. This
binary is a SUID binary -> the binary must be owed by user root, for proper working.
In cases where this binary is not owned by user root, the authuser returns an
unusable error message.

ToDo: The binary should check if root is the owner, if not return a message
which describes the problem. For installation issue it would be nice, if the
error could be provided to the installer, to give the user a good error description.
