That looks OK, but as I said before, you need to check the permissions
on the /home/ast directory. What's the output of "ls -ld /home/ast"?
It needs to grant execute permissions to the user or group that the
script is running as.

If that looks OK, you might want to try calling os.getuid() and
os.getgid() from your script, to make sure it's running under the same
UID/GID you think it is.

P.S. When using Gmail, it's better to use "Reply to All" instead of
"Reply"; that way your messages continue to go to the mailing list,
and other people can help you.
