mysqldump error 13

Just when you thought it would be a smooth and productive afternoon, finishing off a simple database export with mysqldump, errors pop up:

mysqldump: Couldn’t execute ‘SHOW TRIGGERS LIKE ‘catalog\_product\_super\_link”:
Can’t create/write to file ‘D:\temp\#sql_424_0.MYI’ (Errcode: 13) (1)

MySQL’s perror showed me that error code 13 is actually a “Permission denied” OS error. I suddenly noticed that the small McAfee icon in the corner of my screen was a kind of… guilty shade of red. After disabling the virus scanner, the mysqldump worked as expected. Hurray.
