Description of problem:
When i issue the command 'setfacl -R -m u:[user]:rwx /[directory]'
setfacl processes the entire filesystem. I believe it is because
directory entries . and .. get processed and acted upon. I do not
think this is the expected behavior at least it is not what I expect
I am using jfs for my filesystem along with setfacl version 2.2.23
running under Fedora Core 3 with all updates applied.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. issue setfacl command with -R switch specifying a directory below
Actual Results: entire filesystem gets acl's applied to it
Expected Results: only files contained in that directory and below
would have acl's modified
Please test this again with a newer Fedora Core version (>= 4) and reopen
against this version if the bug is still present.
Closing as "NOT A BUG" for now.
