Modify the permission checks

The attached patch (only compile-tested) makes the permission checks consistent
with the messages.  I was not sure what the permission requirements actually
are, so the changes are just my best guess at the intended semantics.

I applied a variation of this patch to 1.5.3. Thanks for spotting the problem.

audit-1.5.3 was built into rawhide and should solve this problem. Thanks for
reporting it.
