  Hm, that's an oversight on my part. Reading the database should be
possible by normal users, but the lock is currently taken O_RDWR
the locking primitive is the same for reading and for writing), so
it fails. I will fix that.

  Until then, sure, read your info from the source directory, but be
aware it may not be in sync with the current live database.

  Thanks for the report!
