if you create a .txt file in a web, but don't give the web server permission to view it, then goto view it via foswiki (trunk)

you get shown what appears to be a valid but empty topic, which has a created date of whenever you view'd it.

needs to be compared to 1.0, and to wonder what error the user should see

Same behaviour in 1.0.9

I'm reluctant to add a check for file write permissions, as this is an edge case - it will only occur as the result of a shell operation on the server.

Therefore confirming, but downgrading to low.

Checking on 1.1.3, same thing. Briefly looking at Store, it doesn't verify if an open or read fails, only the save actions. We do have the file permission checks in configure that would find this condition, except they are limited to the number of checks performed to keep configure runtime reasonable.

It would probably be better for store to include error handling for every open.
