Looks readable to me.  How odd.

Might be some permission stuff (e.g. ACLs) on top of the standard Unix
permissions I guess, if your platform has such things.  I'm not sure how
they'd have got set accidentally though.

Can you do:

cat /opt/omega/data/scanned_documents/iamflint > /dev/null

If that doesn't reveal anything useful, try changing get_msg() to
get_description() in the lines added to omega.cc in that patch and try
again I guess.  That'll show the message returned via errno from open().
