Hello Devon,

Switch to ml reply as this seems to be more appropriated... :)

Does that mean that, after fixing the permissions, everything's now working

No problem on that, but I think it's more appropriate to:
 - start a discussion on the ml,
 - switch to filing a bug on bugzilla if from the discussion it appears to
   be a real bug
(unless of course you are sure from the very first minute that it is a
bug ;)

Anyway, if you now can fully enjoy Claws, that's perfect.
