Yes, the permission change solved the problem.

I did notice odd behaviour with the firewire connection. Since the builtin 
firewire chip is Ricoh, when I need to connect the saffire card (which 
isn't every day) I use an expresscard (with TI chipset). Interestingly I 
need to shutdown and start again to get the system to recognise the extra 
card, just rebooting doesn't work (cold boot works hot boot doesn't). this 
isn't new, BTW, it's been the case for a while.

and ffado-test  seems to have disappeared. I added ffado-devel just in 
case but I don't seem to have it.
