We are running a torque / Maui configuration on a cluster of about 400 
nodes, and from time to time we find that pbs_mom has either crashed and 
restarted or was initially started as a non-privileged user.

pbs_mom is installed on each of the clients with the following permissions:

-rwx------  1 root root 317504 Jul 26 10:06 /usr/sbin/pbs_mom

We find it on machines from time to time being run by normal users. Any 
ideas as to why this would be happening?
