Motion - Support Question 2013x 02x 14x 143443

Mition terminating from permission issue but have full (777) writes to target_dir

Question

I've check and rechecked and I cannot seem to get motion to not crash telling me: Error opening file ./01-20130214092059-24.jpg with mode w: Permission denied

I've double checked and even set the target_dir to full read/write for everyone (chmod -R 777 target_dir) and still no luck. I must be missing something. I used the default config file and just changed the daemon to yes and the target_dir. I must be missing something.
