What does this do?:

   f.setAttributes( f.ATTR_HIDDEN );

If it still fails it's not a bug in the mask as I previously thought. From
glancing at the code I can see there is a mask used to filter what
attributes can be set so it's probably a bug in the flags/options used
to open the file. I will have to look at a packet capture and compare
to see where we're going wrong.
