Apologies if you get two copies of this message.  I accidently pressed
some random key combo in emacs and who knows what happened.  Anyway,
the problem seems to have something to do with the
--change-source-perms option.  Are you running as root?  If so you
don't need that option, at least under linux.  If it works ok without
that option that would be a useful clue.
