[ejabberd] Cannot run ejabberdctl as root on 17.07

today I updated ejabberd from 17.04 straight to 17.07 (which by the way
was not announced on this mailinglist, only on the blog) and now I'm
unable to run the `ejabberdctl' command as root.
I compiled ejabberd with the option `--enable-user=ejabberd', so I tried
to run the command as user `ejabberd', and that works. I'm puzzled by
that. Is this a bug?
# ejabberdctl status
ERROR: This command can only be run by root or the user ejabberd
I *am* root. The very same command succeeds if run as user ejabberd:
$ ejabberdctl status
The node ejabberd at localhost is started with status: started
ejabberd 17.07 is running in that node
Any hints are appreciated.
