IPC User Problem (was Situational Deadlock)

Attached is the latest fix for this. This change limits the desired behavior to the specific test that denies access to the IPC service. This patch may allow excessive access to IPC when certain force tags and "admin user" are in the global section. The code needs exposure to a larger number of configurations.

Please send me a final version of the patch (diff -u) that
you are proposing as an attachment.
