Subject: [PATCH] Multiuser environment permissions
I have found one difficulty with the autocache patch, not a
showstopper, but annoying. The problem occurs when you have multiple
users on the same machine. If one user creates the cache, several files
inside will be owned by that user. The other user then cannot access
/builddir/ due to permissions. The attached patch fixes this situation.
Basically, it is very localized to the _make_our_user() function. It
checks to see if the user already exists with a different UID from the
current UID. If it detects this, it deletes and recreates the user and
chown's the appropriate files.
Feedback appreciated. If this is ok, please apply with the
Other than this issue, we have been using the autocache patch
here for a few days with no other issues.
