Although my ipod was apparently mounted and fully
accessible, it was not possible for a normal user to
write to the ipod's disk because of a set-up problem in
Mdk 9.2 : the device is created with root only write
access.

Gtkpod should 'touch' test files in various places, to
verify that it's got proper write access to the device
rather than (apparently) relying on the access rights
of the file system

    I m not sure if that s really helpful. Testing basically
    makes sense just before the database sync -- but then you
    get the message anyway. Please let me know if you think
    otherwise. --JCS
