Starting the latest master version of BIND 10 with '-u bind' failed:

2012-06-19 09:37:17.687 INFO  [b10-boss.boss] BIND10_STARTING_PROCESS starting process b10-cfgmgr
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/jinmei/opt/libexec/bind10-devel/b10-cfgmgr", line 137, in <module>

RuntimeError: Unable to use interprocess sync lockfile: /home/jinmei/opt/var/bind10-devel/logger_lockfile

This is because the group ID of cfgmgr (and originally bind10 for that
matter) hasn't been changed while the lock file was opened when bind
10 was a root.

I believe this is critical and should be fixed before the release. So
I'm pushing it to the current sprint.

trac2067 is ready for review.

It doesn't include a direct test that -u option really change the gid
(that's the same for the uid, too, though), but I confirmed it worked
on my personal system that previously had the trouble.

It's a visible regression, but I don't think we need a changelog entry
for this as it was only not introduced in the middle of two releases.
