Hi there,

Whenever I run into problems like this and I can't easily resolve them,
I turn to truss (http://bit.ly/yipvq) or strace (http://bit.ly/1oXQ4v)
so I can see exactly what's happening to cause the permission denied
message.

If you want, post output from those tools back here, and I'm sure
someone can help you narrow the problem down.

Cheers,
Greg
