Check the ACL. I bet the user really doesn't have permission to set
attribtues. If the ACL is ok and it still doesn't work, try setting
specific attributes to see if it makes any difference. If it does there is
a bug (a few revs back I allowed all bits of the AccessMask to be returned
by getAttributes so setting ALL of them may not be correct).
