When x2gobroker-authservice starts, it creates four files in /var/log/x2gobroker: access.log, authservice.log, broker.log and error.log (if they do not already exist). Because x2gobroker-authservice is running as root, these files will be owned by root and have permission mode 644. This makes them unwriteable to anybody but root. When x2gobroker-daemon starts it will attempt to open at least /var/log/x2gobroker/broker.log, but since x2gobroker-daemon runs as the user x2gobroker, it can't open that file in write-mode. This makes the daemon exit without any error messages when started by the init-system. It might be best to make x2gobroker-authservice keep to it's own set of log-files to avoid this problem. A work-around is to chown ownership of the files to the user x2gobroker.
