Public bug reported:

Not sure if this is an upstream bug or not as I am unable to test on
another Linux.

Open boincmgr, open Advanced menu and select "Launch another BOINC
manager". Nothing happens.

This appears in the console:
execv: Permission denied

Cannot find anything in the syslog regarding permission conflicts.

Tried with upstream version 7.0.44 and the problem remains.

Could this be specific to Ubuntu?
