ok, but  as far as I can see it's not a crash,
it's just an error like "open file foo"  when  you have not the right
permissions on foo.
In other words: mtxrun  doesn't have  the right permissions in that folder
so it' correct that it stops
*and* exits. If it stops and hang forever, of if it stops with a seg.
fault,  then it's an error,
