Note that the appropriate fix for this is to pass --user on the exec line, which is broken in the upstream bug #740583. A workaround if that bug isn't fixed soon is to use 'su', but that should be avoided.

This bug was fixed in the package drizzle - 2011.03.13-0ubuntu2

drizzle (2011.03.13-0ubuntu2) natty; urgency=low

  * patches/fix-user-option.patch: Merging fix from upstream elliot
    branch to enable --user option. (LP: #740583)
  * drizzle.upstart: use --user option to set user to drizzle
    (LP: #739778)
  * drizzle.preinst: fix permissions on /var/lib/drizzle if user ran a
    version prior to this and ran as root.
  * drizzle.upstart: change start on to just start on runlevel [2345]
    so that switching from single user to multi works (LP: #756787)
  * conf.d/auth-file.cnf: ship working configuration (LP: #739837)
  * drizzle.upstart: pipe output to logger to catch plugin problems.
  * drizzle-plugin-auth-file.postinst: create drizzle.users file with
    random password using pwgen (added to deps in control).
