Bug Description

Specifying e4defrag -c dirname just give "Done" and nothing else.

Note: the directory contained a file that was badly fragmented, I presume, because the program took more than 20 minutes to defrag that file.

Note: the fragmentation occurred when the volume filled up to 1%.

I've experienced the same issue even when the check is against my home folder.
Just noticed that using 'sudo' resolves the problem on my machine.

Using Xubuntu 14.04.5 LTS

Hope this will help.
