What??  Yes this is correct, I just tested.  saceserver won't start unless
it has _write_ access to the database directory.

This is quite a change from the rpc aceserver's behavior, and a surprising
one.  I see now that wdoc/SOCKET_aceserver.html says,

  user name under which the daemon runs, avoid root, choose some local user
  owning /home/databases/aardvarkDB

I wonder, could a more specific error message be given when this problem is
encountered, instead of just "Connection refused"?
