If you don't specify a PID file on the command line, it tries to write  
it to the current directory.

If the couchdb user doesn't have the permissions to do that, it will  

Either specify the PID file via the command line, or change directory  
to one where the couchdb user has permission to write, which should  
be /var/lib/couchdb if memory serves.
