In these days of pay for submit, free listings are worth their weight in gold. Am I about to lose all mine ?
If those files were DELETED--and returned the evil "error 404," then I could easily see cause to panic.
But a permission error is a weird kind of problem, most search engines would take an attitude of 'try again later.' I would imagine they handle it as if the site was unreachable.
