[ic] Error when trying to add new item

	I just installed Interchange 4.5.7, and after stumbling through several 
install related errors that I was able to resolve, it appears to be 
working.  I installed the "Construct Something" demo, and I've been able to 
do anything with the demo that I can think of, except one thing.  I can't 
add new items.
	I keep getting an "Internal Server Error" that says: "The server 
encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to 
complete your request."  After checking my error log, I found this line: rwDkwQzo: - [17/October/2000:20:29:04 -0700] 
construct /cgi-bin-443/construct/admin/item_edit Runtime error: Can't 
create /.autonumber: Permission denied at 
/usr/local/interchange/lib/Vend/Interpolate.pm line 2039

	I have searched high and low and I can't figure out what "/.autonumber" 
is, where it's trying to be created, and what line 2039 in "Interpolate.pm" 
has anything to do with it.  The line number is the sixth line in the "sub 
tag_counter" routine.
	What can I do to fix this?  I have group permissions turned on, so the 
INTERCH user and the CONSTRUCT user can share files.  I'm guessing that 
it's trying to create this file on the root of the file system, but I don't 
know for sure, and I'm totally lost.
