 Hmm, there's something wrong with your system. $HOME should probably not
 point to / which seems to be the case for you.

 The PA code currently assume that $HOME is writable. Happy to take patches
 that would add compatibility with r/o $HOME.

 Please create seperate bug reports for all issues you have.
