as it seems is there a little problem with the start/stop script in  
/etc/init.d on a Ubuntu 10.04 LTS system. it display at every start of  
the manager, administrator or gsad an ERROR even though it seems that  
the daemons start without greater problems.

i found a thread about this issue here:

i couldn't check the functionality of the manager, because i had  
problems running the test from the repository. the command make shows  
me the error:
CMakeLists.txt:27: *** missing separator.  Stop.

given that i am not familar with make i have no idea what the problem  
could be.

altogether, if i start all start/stop scripts, the gsad works fine.  
just a little error in the performance tab, that a system reporting  
program is missing.
