Hi, all,

I have previously used i-Installer to install TeX on 10.3.3, with no 
problems.  I wanted to install something else, so I ran it again, 
selected TeX (looking for what I wanted), and got this error alert:

    I am unable to create the default save directory 
~/Documents/i-Packages on disk. Permissions or directory problem?

Here's what I see from the command-line (with my home directory as CWD):

$ ls -ld Documents/
drwxr-xr-x  20 justin  staff  680  4 May 08:35 Documents/
$ ls -ld Documents/i-Packages/
drwxr-xr-x  8 justin  staff  272 28 Mar 22:07 Documents/i-Packages/

"About" sez: "i-Installer version v2 (v2.25.0)"
