BUG: No errors to stdout when target_dir not writable

If I set the target_dir configuration variable to a value where there is no write permissions, motion simply exits with a "Thread exiting" message when it attempts to start writing output files. Perhaps it tries to write the error message into syslog only (mine is not currently working). I have the daemon mode off.

Test case

Environment

Motion version: 3.1.17
Shared libraries:  
Server OS: Fedora Core 3

Fix record

Yes. Most error messages are written to syslog since Motion is mainly meant to be running as a daemon.
