Description Steve Grubb 2005-06-15 11:56:55 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.0.4-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
The mode reported by PATH records seems to be the parent dir permissions rather than the file that is listed:

type=PATH msg=audit(06/07/05 13:54:22.683:3988791) : item=1 
name=/mnt/target/etc/passwd.old inode=393217 dev=03:09 mode=dir,755 ouid=root 
ogid=root rdev=00:00
type=PATH msg=audit(06/07/05 13:54:22.683:3988791) : item=0 
name=/mnt/target/etc/passwd inode=393217 dev=03:09 mode=dir,755 ouid=root 
ogid=root rdev=00:00
type=CWD msg=audit(06/07/05 13:54:22.683:3988791) :  cwd=/home/sgrubb
