Those are the settings I am also using with my (old old old!) version of
Mailwatch. I think you are using the new one released yesterday (lurking
on mailwatch list too), perhaps there's something odd/new in there.
I would say though, that if directory owner has write permission and
quarantine user is root, it would be very strange if root could then not
write the file.
What ownership/permissions are/were on the quarantine directories?
