[Live-demo] Permissions problems with GeoServer

even with my most recent fixes 
GeoServer on a nightly build will still not start.

Looks to me like permissions problems (files and directories in the data 
directory whcih are owned by root). Likely culprit is 
install_geonode.sh, which starts GeoServer as root "to update layers in 
the geonode db", causing the creation of files and directories owned by 
root:root. The solution (in install_geonode.sh) might be something like:

su -c "$GEOSERVER_PATH/bin/startup.sh" - user

but it will take a little fiddling to get this working with redirection 
and running in the background. I will let you know when I have a fix.

Kind regards,
