Hello Everyone,

Yes, likewise, I cannot reproduce this on CentOS 4.8.

The permissions for the directory, from a clean RPM install, are 755 for 

However, the fixes listed and discussed, make good sense to me, so I 
will be sure to include that in future rpm releases.

Jamie, Devrim, thank you both for your input. =)
