I decided to try MythArchive for the first time.  I did *not*
"--enable-create-dvd" since I only want to use it for it's "export
native" feature.

I installed it, and went into it setup screens, and configured it.

Then I "ran" it.  I selected a few files, and told it to "export" them
to the "/video/archive/" directory, which I had created.  When the
archive process actually started up, it spit out:

Basically, it tried to chmod my entire file system.

Since I told it to save the result in "/video/archive", why is it
trying to use root?

Thanks,

John
