bind()'ing to a privileged port happens in the torque client libs (maui is a
torque client).

Because of the setuid bit on pbs_iff, you can't strace it as non-root.  It will
simply not work.

When using non-root, the only way this can fail with EACCES is when pbs_iff
isn't setuid root or you are strace'ing it.

The only way I can think of to cause this particular error when running as root
is if the client was setuid non-root.  Though I can't think of a reason why
clients would be setuid non-root.  Weird umask?
