Weird... CCC is definitely creating a new disk image and that's
just failing. I'm curious whether you get the same error message
from Disk Utility if you try to create a 232GB sparse disk image on
the same volume. I'm also curious whether the same error would
occur if you create a sparsebundle disk image rather than a
"authopen" is a system utility that is engaged on your behalf
when an application wants to open a file that your account doesn't
have access to. Maybe this is simply a permissions/ownership issue?
If you click on the folder that you're trying to save to, then
choose "Get Info" from the Finder's File menu, is your account
listed as having full access to that folder at the bottom of the
Get Info window?

here's the two images. I tried just saving a file to the root
level of the disk and inside a new folder that I had created.
Worked fine. My permissions are all OK on that disk.
My move to Mtn Lion did cause some permission problems
initially, as I erased my internal HD and did a clean install, then
migrated what was needed from my CCC sparseimage of the old Lion
Since the # of items already on that disk, and their importance
to me, is minimal, I've moved them to another HD and am in the
process of erasing it and writing 0's across it once. Should be
done later today. I'll let you know how that worked out.
