No good.  The access control lists are stored *inside* the ntuser.dat
files, so it's not just a simple matter of chmod or chown.


This is why we Unix people just *love* the concept of opaque binary
on-disk structures, as opposed to text files.  (That's why there has
been some resistance to the growing pervasiveness of *.tdb files in
Samba, which we're trying to alleviate by making it easy to convert
these to/from plain text.)
