[Dirvish] dirvish-expire trouble with read only vault directories ?

I've had divish (v1.2.1) working for over a month now, doing daily
backups from my various systems at home.  
However, when dirvish-expire runs from crontab, it emails me a huge message with a whole lot of lines that say basically :
   rm: cannot remove `/backup/pictures/20060328/tree/image001.jpg': Permission denied
A quick look at the permissions for the ./tree directory shows :  dr-xr-xr-x.   

I'm running both dirvish and dirvish-expire as a normal user (not root) so it appears dirvish is setting the directory as read-only and dirvish-expire cannot deal with that.
Do I have to run dirvish-expire as root to fix this ?  I'd rather not do that.
