Hmm.  I haven't seen that particular one before.  

First, how about you download the current version (7.1.3)?  There are no
advantages to using 7.0.3, and quite a few disadvantages.

Then, after the initdb process errors out, check for that file and see
what permissions are on it.  I'm also curious why anything is being done
in /root/tmp.  Is your system set up so that /root/tmp is the general
temp directory?  Was, perhaps, the postgres user set up with /root/ as a
home directory?
