I seem to be having trouble figuring out why supervisord won't run as a non-root user. If I start it with the user set to jason (pid 1000), I get the following in the log file:

2010-05-24 08:53:32,143 CRIT Set uid to user 1000
2010-05-24 08:53:32,143 WARN Included extra file "/home/jason/src/tsched/celeryd.conf" during parsing
2010-05-24 08:53:32,189 INFO RPC interface 'supervisor' initialized
2010-05-24 08:53:32,189 WARN cElementTree not installed, using slower XML parser for XML-RPC
2010-05-24 08:53:32,189 CRIT Server 'unix_http_server' running without any HTTP authentication checking
2010-05-24 08:53:32,190 INFO daemonizing the supervisord process
2010-05-24 08:53:32,191 INFO supervisord started with pid 3444

...then the process dies for some unknown reason. If I start it without sudo (under the user jason), I get similar output:

2010-05-24 08:51:32,859 INFO supervisord started with pid 3306
2010-05-24 08:52:15,761 CRIT Can't drop privilege as nonroot user

2010-05-24 08:52:15,809 INFO supervisord started with pid 3397

...and it still doesn't run. If it's any help, here's the supervisord.conf file I'm using:

[unix_http_server]
file=/tmp/supervisor.sock   ; path to your socket file

[supervisord]
logfile=./supervisord.log ; supervisord log file
logfile_maxbytes=50MB       ; maximum size of logfile before rotation
logfile_backups=10          ; number of backed up logfiles
loglevel=debug ; info, debug, warn, trace
pidfile=./supervisord.pid ; pidfile location
nodaemon=false              ; run supervisord as a daemon
minfds=1024                 ; number of startup file descriptors
minprocs=200                ; number of process descriptors
user=jason ; default user
childlogdir=./supervisord/            ; where child log files will live


[rpcinterface:supervisor]
supervisor.rpcinterface_factory = supervisor.rpcinterface:make_main_rpcinterface

[supervisorctl]
serverurl=unix:///tmp/supervisor.sock ; use unix:// schem for a unix sockets.

[include]

# Uncomment this line for celeryd for Python
files=celeryd.conf

# Uncomment this line for celeryd for Django.
;files=django/celeryd.conf

...and here's celeryd.conf:

[program:celery]
command=bin/celeryd --loglevel=INFO --logfile=./celeryd.log

environment=PYTHONPATH='./tsched_worker',
            JIVA_DB_PLATFORM='oracle',
            ORACLE_HOME='/usr/lib/oracle/xe/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/server',
            LD_LIBRARY_PATH='/usr/lib/oracle/xe/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/server/lib',
            TNS_ADMIN='/home/jason',
            CELERY_CONFIG_MODULE='tsched_worker.celeryconfig'

directory=.
user=jason
numprocs=1
stdout_logfile=/var/log/celeryd.log
stderr_logfile=/var/log/celeryd.log
autostart=true
autorestart=true
startsecs=10

; Need to wait for currently executing tasks to finish at shutdown.
; Increase this if you have very long running tasks.
stopwaitsecs = 600

; if rabbitmq is supervised, set its priority higher
; so it starts first
priority=998

Can anyone help me figure out what's going on?
