Message Ray -

        The problem is with permissions somehow. The fact that the log
file is empty, and doesn't even have a startup message, is the primary
indicator, as Hunter said. Check the permission on /usr and /usr/var as
well - try opening them up a bit to see what happens. If that works,
we'll obviously need to figure something else out 'cause having open
permissions isn't good.
