I'm sorry, CELERYD_USER is not a configuration option, it is however an environment variable read by the celeryd init scripts, but since you mention you're using supervisord, then this won't have any effect.

I'd bet there is an option for this in supervisord, which is what you would have to use.

Also, this isn't related to RabbitMQ, so it would be nice if you moved such discussion to the celery-users mailing list, which is the appropriate fora.
