Pretty close to zero on the above.

I removed the obvious errors and several kilobytes of selinux related 
stuff from the above as its set permissive.

I expect some of the above, like the group entries for a group 501, could 
just as well be deleted.  But are they a factor?  I don't know.  I will 
get rid of the group 501 entries though, just to make me feel better.

FWIW, amanda ran just fine this morning.

Thanks Ross.
