Of course, I found that if I give Full Control to Everyone, then things 
work, but that's not an optimal solution.  Actually, "work" is also not

but using Clearcase itself, I get weirdo errors from the "mkview" 
command about "permission denied" when it tries to create files under 
whatever view directory it created.
