Durham's DPM and lcg-rep problems

Problem with lcg-rep and the DPM at Durham has been fixed, it was tracked down to a permissions problem on /etc/grid-security/gridmapdir. This directory needs to be group owned by dpmmgr, it was group owned by edginfo. The DPM machine crashed a few weeks ago, the system has to fsck it's disks on the way back up and I suspect this is when the ownership change happened. The reason that globus-url-copy worked and non of the other DPM protocols didn't was because the dpm-ftpd runs as root, where as all the other dpm daemons run as dpmmgr.
