[torquedev] gssapi branch update & bug in chk_file_sec.c

I have an earlier version of the gssapi branch deployed and it's working
reasonably well (after a lot of hacking). I'm now trying to update the
deployment to the latest version. The first problem encountered is
segfaults in pbs_mom:

Core was generated by `/usr/sbin/pbs_mom'.
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.
#0  0xb7d4a731 in vsnprintf () from /lib/i686/cmov/libc.so.6
(gdb) bt
#0  0xb7d4a731 in vsnprintf () from /lib/i686/cmov/libc.so.6
#1  0xb7d305a5 in snprintf () from /lib/i686/cmov/libc.so.6
#2  0xb7f2874c in chk_file_sec (path=0x8104af8
"/var/spool/torque/undelivered/", isdir=1, sticky=1,
    disallow=2, fullpath=0, EMsg=0x0) at ../Liblog/chk_file_sec.c:312
#3  0x0805e23f in main (argc=1, argv=0xbfb65524) at mom_main.c:6717

The recent change to chk_file_sec() is puzzling: it states that EMsg is
supposed to be optional, however if there is an error it does a
snprintf, causing the segfault.
