BusObj: Object failed to run due to insufficient security privileges.

I had a situation recently where scheduled Business Objects reports began to fail with the error message: "Object failed to run due to insufficient security privileges. ".  Having spent some time googling the error there seem to be many potential causes if permissions have been changed but in this case it turned out that a user had been deleted.  In Business Objects (XI R3.1 at least), when a user is deleted their scheduler instances will be allocated to the Administrator who, despite having scheduler privileges, appears not to be able to execute scheduled reports. The only solution I could find was to manually reschedule all reports previously owned by the deleted user, if anyone has any better solutions or knows of a method to make a bulk change rather than individually I would love to hear it!
