WebSphere "Unable to save ear"

Hi all,
Has anyone received the error, "Unable to save ear", when deploying an ear on WebSphere 4.0? I suspect it is a permission problem because I use the same Ant script on another machine and the generated ear deploys OK. There is a diffence in the umask between machines and I know Ant does not retain file permissions when copying. The build consists of a WAR, utility jars, and a deployed EJB jar. Does anyone know what file permissions WebSphere needs when deploying an ear?
I agree. Here's the link:

It's not a secret anymore!
