Hi Andrew
I am testing s3fs but have come up against a problem on the windows side.

I want a folder that can only be entered by members of a group, say 
'staff'. I mkdir the folder and set it to 0750. But now, no one can 
enter. They get 'Access is denied' even if they are a member of the 
group staff. I have to set the permissions to 0777 to allow entry.

Note: I am setting the permissions in Linux.

Does s3fs understand Linux octal file values?
Do these patches fix this problem?

Thanks for your efforts. I know that this can't be easy.
