On my system, named does not have write permission to the named
directory, but it does have permission to named/data.

        # ll /var/named/chroot/var/
        total 24
        drwxr-x---  4 root  named 4096 Aug 25  2004 named
        drwxrwx---  3 root  named 4096 Mar 13  2003 run
        drwxrwx---  2 named named 4096 Mar 13  2003 tmp

        # ll /var/named/chroot/var/named/
        total 16
        drwxrwx---  5 named named 4096 Sep 25 14:25 data
        drwxrwx---  2 named named 4096 Jul 27  2004 slaves

Everything is working fine for me with these settings, so I don't think
this is a problem.
