[radvd-devel-l] Insecure file permissions, but continuing anyway

Dear All,

I was looking if I could "solve" the "Insecure file permissions, but
continuing anyway" message I see in the syslog.

I used "chmod 600 /mnt/radvd.conf" to make it only read/writeable by root
(admin in my case), but that didn't solve it.

Even with "chmod 000 /mnt/radvd.conf" it still gives the same message:
 ----------    1 admin    root         2927 Aug 20  2011 radvd.conf

Jan  1 00:01:59 (none) daemon.info radvd[642]: version 1.8.1 started  74
Jan  1 00:02:00 (none) daemon.warn radvd[642]: Insecure file permissions,
but continuing anyway 101

Any tips to solve this?

This is a (uclibc based) ADSL router with the following user configured (no
user root, but uses admin instead).
# cat /etc/passwd
support:.xxxx.:0:0:Technical Support:/:/bin/sh
user:xxxx:0:0:Normal User:/:/bin/sh

# env

Thanks for the development of this great program.
