Could not chdir to /var/spool/fcron: Permission denied

This message I got after a system-update on my Raspberry Pi running ArchLinux everytime, I tried to edit my root-crontab using:

#> fcrontab -e

The solution is very simple: Even when you are root, you have to be a member of the fcron group. After adding a user to this group, editing the crontabs works again. Do not forget to logout and re-login prior to editing the crontabs! ;)
