It seems that the revlib was causing the problem - part of the
_now shared_ revlib was created before I discovered that the revlib
parent dir (if shared) must have the sticky bit set.

I ran the following:

find /home/arch/revlib/ | xargs chmod a+r

which however concerns me, since there was a warning about changing
permissions of files in the revlib.

Is it better to blow away the revlib and recreate it at this point?
