Hmm. Interesting question. Both /usr/bin/ntpd and /etc/ntp/stats are
owned by root with a group of root.
[rob at myarch ~]$ ls -ld /etc/ntp/stats
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 48 2007-10-02 18:39 /etc/ntp/stats
I didn't think one needed a ntpd user. I don't see one in /etc/passwd
I can create one if needed.
But since ntpd is being run during my init script as root, it should have
all the privileges to write into a directory owned by root.
