Subject: [gentoo-user] sys-process/at permission denied

after upgrading to  sys-process/at-
I cannot use at (batch) anymore.
I always get
Cannot create atjob file /var/spool/at/atjobs/b000010134cba5: Permission denied

But I don't understand this, since

ls -l /usr/bin/at 
-rwsr-s--x 1 at at 42688 Jun 23 17:13 /usr/bin/at

shows that the SUID/SGID bits are on, so
unless at drops priviledges it should run as user 'at'


ls -ld  gives
drwx------ 2 at at 4096 Apr 15 16:16 /var/spool/at/atjobs

(and all directories below have execute permission)

so, it should be writeable by user 'at'.

Many thanks for any hints,
