OK, I see now that this is because you fixed DERBY-613 as part of
DERBY-375 (see Kathey's comment in DERBY-375).

This means you need to modify the permissions already granted to
derbynet.jar, not add new ones. Here's the extract from the policy file
for the network server tracing.

  // tracing files - BUG DERBY-613 default location for tracing
  // file is meant to be ${derby.system.home} but instead is ${user.dir}
  // Changes DERBY-613 may require modifying this permission.
  permission java.io.FilePermission "${user.dir}${/}*", "write";

I think you need to change that to something like

  // tracing files, default to derby.system.home
  permission java.io.FilePermission "${derby.system.home}${/}*", "write";
