[Mauiusers] /etc/maui.cfg ignored by clients

It appears that /etc/maui.cfg is read and then ignored by clients. 

I have maui running on my server, where the config file is /var/local/maui/spool/maui.cfg Maui was installed to /usr/local, and /usr/local is an NFS filesystem, so all nodes have access to the executables. I would like to be able to run the admin commands from any node without specifying the server on the command line. 

I created the file /usr/local/etc/maui/maui.cfg for use by the clients, and created /etc/maui.cfg that contains this:

MAUIHOMEDIR /usr/local/etc/maui

When I run a command line diagnose, I get an error:

diagnose -r
WARNING:  cannot open configfile '/var/local/maui/spool/maui.cfg'
INFO:     using internal defaults
ERROR:    cannot connect to '' port 4055

Using strace shows that diagnose reads /etc/maui.cfg, and then ignores it:
