No, but the error that you got indicates that the multipart 
RequestFactory could not access its upload director.

So it is a directory permission problem, which obviously goes away when 
running as root (maybe because you started tomcat as root first and it 
created this directory).

Here's the code around line 61 of 

     if (saveUploadedFilesToDisk) {
            // Empty the contents of the upload directory
            File[] files = uploadDirectory.listFiles();
            for (int i = 0; i < files.length; i++) {

I haven't checked but IIRC, by default the uploads to somewhere under 
the WEB-INF of your Cocoon webapp, you should check access rights
