fixes in assp 2.5.6 build 17026

Thomas Eckardt/eck
Hi all,

fixed in assp 2.5.6 build 17026:

- If 'runAsUser' and/or 'runAsGroup' were used on a nix OS, it was possible that assp has created folders and
  files at startup as 'root', which became unaccessible to the switched user/group. This caused unexpected behavior
  in several functions and checks. Some files may caused crashes.
  Now, if any of 'runAsUser' or 'runAsGroup' is configured, assp corrects the owner id, group id and the permission
  of all created folders and files before the process is switched to the configured user/group.
 
NOTICE:
  This does NOT replace the requirement to run 'chown -R user:group *' for the assp folder before the next start,
  if any of 'runAsUser' or 'runAsGroup' was changed!
  Instead of running this command, setting 'setFilePermOnStart' to ON, will do the same at the next startup.
  BUT !!! - depending on the count of corpus files, this startup may take very much longer than expected!

changed:

- the code integrity check failed, if the first line of assp.pl was changed to use another perl interpreter
