It looks like there is a bug in check_perms. check_perms checks
archives/private to be sure it isn't o+r and also warns if it is o+x
although on most systems, it has to be for public archives to work,
but check_perms doesn't check for any user or group permissions on
archives/private nor does it even check to make sure it is o-w.

Sorry for all the trouble.
