Hey,
I had an issue with the RUN_AS variable. This was behaving really weird: When executing the chown an '\r' was included. When executing the start-stop-daemon an '^M' was added. In the end i renamed the RUN_AS to RUN_AS1 and everything worked. I think RUN_AS could be a protected or used variable.
