[IDV #BTU-802166]: permissions on IDV_2.8 directory

Hi Bill,

I have no idea why this would happen. Perhaps opening the kmz triggered Java
to load in some class files from the installer directory.  Did you have read
access to the installer directory? Write access shouldn't matter. The only
place the IDV writes to is <user>/.unidata/idv/DefaultIdv
