I tried it and found the problem. Chown cannot be done on files which 
haven't seen `stores' yet. But the test was also triggered for 
directories. You can create an empty file in the temp directory and 
from then on the chown will work. I've already put a proper fix in the
tree, which will go out as coda-5.2.4 this week.
