Description Aaron Whiteman 2007-08-08 15:28:13 UTC
Description of problem:

After upgrading to coreutils-4.5.3-28.7 under RedHat Linux AS 3, update 9, the "+" symbol that 
indicated an ACL was active on a particular file/directory no longer displayed.  The ACL was still active 
as indicated by getfacl.  Reverting to coreutils-4.5.3-28.4 restored correct behavior.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): coreutils-4.5.3-28.4

How reproducible: on our systems, very reproducable

Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure RHEL3up9 with all errata installed
2. enable acl support on a filesystem
 # mount -o remount,acl /
3. create a file and assign an ACL
 # cd /tmp
 # touch foo
 # ls -l foo
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            0 Aug  8 08:22 foo
 # setfacl -m 'u:nobody:rwx' foo
 # ls -l foo 
Actual results:
-rw-rwxr--    1 root     root            0 Aug  8 08:22 foo

Expected results:
-rw-rwxr--+   1 root     root            0 Aug  8 08:22 foo

Additional info:

I verified the ACL is working as follows:
# touch foo
# chmod 600 foo
# ls -l
-rw-------    1 root     root            0 Aug  8 08:24 foo
# echo "blah" > foo
# sudo -u nobody cat foo
cat: foo: Permission denied
zsh: exit 1     sudo -u nobody cat foo
# setfacl -m 'u:nobody:rwx' foo
# sudo -u nobody cat foo
