Great, thanks. I've added the EC2_CERT and EC2_PRIVATE_KEY settings to
the config template with an explanation that they're only needed for
creating instance-store (S3) AMIs. The next version will support
creating EBS AMIs as well and for EBS AMIs these settings are no longer

Ahhh OK, so you started the instance in the AWS management console but
added the instance to an existing _at_sc-* security group. In this case
it's safe to ignore the warning about using instances started by
StarCluster since StarCluster didn't actually launch and configure the
instance. StarCluster is giving you the warning in this case because it
thinks that the instance was started by StarCluster. This is because it
sees that the instance is in a _at_sc-* group and typically @sc-* groups
are only created by StarCluster during a 'start' procedure.
