This is the bug I've been reporting for months now. It was introduced with the new tool box feature. There is a work around I can send you when I'm back at a computer. But it really needs to be found and fixed. Anna and I have tried to track it down without success yet.

Going to the "main" user of the machine I could change the permissions, and also checked that GRASS7.0 runs well, all good there, no worries.
