Changes (by marisn):

  * priority:  normal => critical
  * component:  Default => Installation


 I installed Wingrass 7.0 nightly on Vista launching the installer with
 "Run as Admin", still on the ordinary user account I got hit by this bug.
 (For a strange reason the grass70.py file was lacking permissions for
 Users account.)

 Rising its priority as ordinary user might not have Admin rights and thus
 installer should create a working installation at the first place not
 requiring manual adjustment of file permissions later.
