Good question. I don't have easy access to the source just yet.
I'll have a look. We set a global flag (I think) when the server
starts up that we could check when parsing the configs. As I remember,
the check in the exec function just checks to see if the server uid
differs from the main server uid. Bug.

I'll get something out as soon as I get my server back up.
