I found one problem:

bacula-sd is started bacula:tape, but /etc/bacula/bacula-sd.conf belongs 
to root:bacula:

-rw-r-----   1 root bacula  9156 Sep 20 20:31 bacula-dir.conf
-rw-r-----   1 root bacula  1123 Sep 20 20:30 bacula-fd.conf
-rw-r-----   1 root bacula  8066 Sep 20 20:31 bacula-sd.conf

With the old startup bacula-sd was root:root while reading the 
configuration and then dropping to bacula:tape. This now does not work any 

One solution would be to make bacula-sd.conf owned by bacula:bacula.
