"Oh, Bother," said Pooh. I'll try to resolve this - it's working

Unfortunately this doesn't work. The daemons (nfsd,mountd) complain, that
a user with uid different from 18 are allowed to write to /etc/exports.
So the permissions of /etc/exports should be 644 to start the new version
of the daemon.
It seems to me that setting uid=544 and gid=18 fit better. If you think
about it, the SYSTEM user needs only to have read access to /etc/exports,
but the Administrators need to have also write access so they can modify
