Lightroom import on OS X hangs when there's not permission to write to destination folder

I was importing photos and had the destination folder set as my root directory on OS X (I think -- at least it was somewhere deeper than my home folder -- I got there by tweaking an import preset set to save files to a different drive). Lightroom just hung, importing zero photos but not stopping.

I've had this problem occasionally but infrequently enough that I forget how to fix it. It would be helpful to get an appropriate error message -- "Lightroom doesn't have permission to save photos to this location" or whatever is appropriate.
