I fixed this by changing the owner of /usr/local/interchange/etc/jobs
and /usr/local/interchange/etc/jobsqueue to interch from root. 
Sometimes the jobsqueue file is still regenerating with root as the
owner and I don't know why.  I'd like to know how to get that under
control if anyone has any ideas.
