On Thu, 24 Aug 2000 18:59:22 +0200 I sent you some notes about 
"inherit permissions":

    The problem with "inherit permissions = yes" is that it 
    effectively prevents setting the read-only attribute (dropping the 
    w-bit(s)) on existing files.

    All the documentation tells that it only will have effects on 
    newly created things but it insists on chmod-ing with the parent 
    directories attributes whenever you fiddle with attributes from 
    the clients side.

Has something be done on this yet?
