Default [Comm thread May 4 09:22] ERROR: Unable to open spool file.

I'm seeing this error running mprime on CentOS linux
Code:
 [Comm thread May 4 09:22] ERROR: Unable to open spool file.
I'm pretty sure I know what is the cause, but are not sure how to resolve. Yesterday I was configuring mprime to start as the computer boots, and started it as root once. Now it is starting properly as a normal user. I suspect mprime has created a file which is owned by root, to which a normal user can't read/write. Can anyone tell me what that file is? I'll then be able to sort it out.

Or if there's some other reason. I was messing around with a UPS yesterday, which again required some work as root. It is remotely possible that something changed by that is messing up mprime, but I suspect the program is due to running mprime as root for a short time
