So I finally updated my CVSNT version with the latest stable, and after much 
hair pulling and swearing at the monitor with the old version, the latest 
version seems to work fine with permissions.  No more errors with 
permissions creating temp directories, etc.

Thanks so much for all the help.  I would never have guessed that the 
version upgrade would have resolved this problem.

If anyone else runs into this problem, make sure you upgrade to at least before tearing your hair out like I did.
