Summary: Amanda is not running with the correct permissions

I had amanda configured, so the user had group amanda and additional groups
disk and tape. Amanda is using root-dump on the disks, if that matters. When
running amcheck, I got permission errors on the partitions. The problem was,
that xinetd did not set the additional groups by default. I had to add the
groups = yes statement in the amanda config file for xinetd, then it worked.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a fresh install of amanda
2. Configure disklist to dump a partition with root-dump.
3. Run amcheck <configuration>
Actual Results:
ERROR: <host>: Could not access /dev/mapper/vg-lv: Permission denied

Expected Results:
No error message
