I had run across this on some of the SLES machines running at my old work. You
needed to chown the files in question to make sure the symlink was pulling a
file with the correct permissions. I don't remember exactly what we did, but
it was along those lines.

Once done, everything worked. Also, there was some issue with the conf file
being executable - something about the symlink IIRC.
