Package: discus
Version: 0.2.9-1
Severity: normal

I happen to mount some partitions under a directory not
accessible by my normal user.  discuss dies instantly trying
to read them.

$ ls -ld /BACKUP/WORK/
drwx------  7 workbackup workbackup 1024 2004-05-27 13:57 /BACKUP/WORK/

[workbackup is, of course, not a normal user]

$ discus
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/discus", line 479, in ?
  File "/usr/bin/discus", line 451, in main
    disk = Disk(devices[count], mounts[count])
  File "/usr/bin/discus", line 55, in __init__
  File "/usr/bin/discus", line 209, in getstats
    stats = os.statvfs(mount)
OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/BACKUP/WORK/home'

$ strace -e trace=file discus
statfs("/BACKUP/WORK/home", 0xbfffeaa8) = -1 EACCES (Permission denied)
Traceback (most recent call last):
[... as above ...]

This, of course, stops discus from showing any partitions after
it, rendering the package quite unusable in these circumstances ...
