[EP-tech] Re: epadmin reindex (with xapian enabled on 3.3.12) throws a permission denied



My mistake. I did "su eprints" from user root, leaving my current
directory to /root, thus a cwd fails because user eprints is not
allowed to go to /root/

Oh well, at least this is logged in history now for other people
making the same stupid mistake ;-)
