I'm the OP of the message mentioned earlier in this thread:
It seems odd that this same problem cropped up on two different machines 
so close together (I'm running OS X 10.4).  There haven't been any 
recent updates that should have changed permissions like that.  Anyway, 
your suggestion worked in my case, thanks.
