I can confirm the problem, no solution though. Sorry. However, I
can supply an additional piece of information.

The problem seems to be related to the NT security. On the box in
question I have two users in group administrators: One local user
and a remote user (my NT domain user). Both can stop and start
services when logged in via PCAnyWhere. The former can when logged
in via SSH, the latter cant.

Any hint welcome,
