Description Matthew Wright 2006-03-25 04:48:18 EST
Description of problem:

There is a bug with nautilus the default copy action is cp -a meaning that if
you have done chmod g+s on a directory, ordinary users can't have the
permissions of the group inherited by copying into a group folder

To get over this I have had to create teh following stuipd cron job in the crontab.

*      *       *       *       *       find /home/shared \! -group shared -exec
chown :shared {} \; -exec chmod u+rw,g+rw {} \;

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a sub directory and set the group ownership ie chown g+s ./mynewdir
2. copy a file from your home directory (make sure the group ownership of
./mynewdir is some other group than your default one in /etc/passwd
3. do an ls -la mynewdir and see that you can't share files like you should be
able to with other members of the groups you belong too.,
Actual results:

I tried this with the latest rawhide version, and it worked fine.
