I was having a similar problem (I should try reading the documentation
sometime); however, I found in my case that the permissions for the
/acedb30/database directory needed to be changed for writing. Likewise,
fror updating the database I needed to change permissions for
/acedb30/database/blocks.wrm for writing changes. I don't think
think setenv ACEDB_SU was set, but I was able to read *.ace files with
no problem. I hope this helps your situation.
