Description
sage -t -force_lib "devel/sage/sage/structure/sage_object.pyx" ************************************************************* File "/mnt/sda6/COMPILE/sage-4.7.2/devel/sage/sage/structure/ sage_object.pyx", line 1042: sage: sage.structure.sage_object.picklejar(1, dir + '/noaccess') Expected: Traceback (most recent call last): ... OSError: ... Got nothing *******************************************************************
the doctest creates a directory and sets permissions to 0000. if running as root no error is thrown when accessing this directory, hence the failure of the doctest.
Proposed fix: check if running the test as root or flag example as no test

- Status changed from new to needs_review
I attached a patch which fixes the error when run as root. However there is no warning about running tests as root which was suggested on sage-devel.
Example: WARNING: You are running doctests as root! It is strongly advised to stop and run the tests as restricted user Are you sure you want to continue as root (y/n)?
There was another ticket mentioned (#5155), maybe it should be implemented there?

Still get the same error in 5.3, so this is still a minor issue. I filled my real name in the comment of the patch. Where else should I fill it in?
