  Your logged in shell is running with more permissions than your system is 
configured to allow you to have.  Perhaps someone recently edited your 
/etc/groups file or something similar.  Logging all the way out and back in
should give you an environment in which twistd will start up for you.

  If you ran across this without passing uid= or gid= to Application(), 
this is probably a twistd bug.  If you didn't, it's just an undesirable
deployment complication with bad error reporting.  Both should be fixed,
of course :)
