Due to a recently discovered security problem, the ptrace kernel
interface had to be disabled temporarily on the login cluster

This means that debuggers and similar tools, e.g. gdb and strace, will
not work on the login cluster for the time being.


The change has been implemented already. It will be rolled back once a
kernel patch for Scientifc Linux is available and the login cluster has
been rebooted. This is likely to take at least a few days.
