Strangely boinc cares very much who launched it. And if you add a project
as one user, and another user launches boinc in the future, even the
daemon, it won't go well.
Lately the New versions, as long as you launch boincmgr from your desktop
environment it will properly connect to the daemon.
I don't know if this behavior is specific to the debian/ubuntu build, or if
it's like this upstream as well.
