Hi, Rowland.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm not sure if Centrify is responsible for this
permission error,
so I'll set up a simpler environment without it, retry it and post the
results here.

Regarding the three questions I asked today on this mailing list, AFAIK
only this one may be
related to Centrify. Have I misunderstood something?
