This may be it!  Notice that the /home/mcidas directory is:

o owned by 'mcidas', but its group is listed as '517'
o has permissions 700

/home/mcidas% dir
total 152
drwxrwxr-x   2 mcidas   users        8192 Nov 14 11:38 bin/
drwx------   2 mcidas   users        4096 Nov 13 18:56 .mctmp/
drwxrwxr-x   2 mcidas   users        4096 Nov 13 18:56 workdata/
drwx------  16 mcidas   517          4096 Nov 13 16:44 ./
drwxrwxr-x   3 mcidas   users        8192 Nov 13 16:29 data/

It will take 'root' to change the group of /home/mcidas.  While at it,
the directory permissions should be set to 775.
