    And AFS has N user and/or group entries (registered with the AFS pts
server) with lookup, insert, delete, administer, read, write, and lock
permissions applied to directories.  The files in the directories take the
permissions of the directory. The unix owner/group/other settings are
ignored even though they are present.

    Also, my experience tells me that the sticky and execute bits on files
in AFS may also have an effect, but I haven't found documentation to
clarify it.  Some programs pay attention to them, some don't.
