It sounds like the users no longer have the appropriate permissions to
create/modify the appropriate temporary files.
My guess is that when you upgraded to 3.4.3 you enabled more
fine-grained ACL support.
What OS and file system? Do you have ACL support? I can't speak for
MS Access, but I did find that MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint and will often
explicitly modify file permissions in a way that could result in the
user loosing access. This was on solaris, when we changed migrated
from UFS to ZFS file system. For example, if a file was set to be 660
in unix, the "user and group can read and write but everyone else is not
allowed" in unix would be treated as "everyone is denied even the user
and group" in Windows. If you check the permissions under windows you
would see that a deny entry was overriding the allow entries.
