Description Michael Redinger 2002-04-21 09:35:01 EDT
chmod g=u does not work as expected. The write privilege is removed. 
This not very logical and differs from other Unix platforms (I tried Irix, 
Solaris and AIX). 
(I think this was done for security reasons. But this is not Windows. I want 
to shoot myself in the foot! :)
