Hi jared, im not quite sure right now. I think it touch /proc due to file desriptor check. Since grsecutity prevent non root aps touching proc it cant run under riak user. Im sorry i cant provide more informations now. Problem is strictly related to kernels with grsecurity patch. There is also problem with mprotect  on beam.smp. It has to off. It can be done via paxctl -m /path/beam.smp
