Thanks for sharing this.  I can confirm that this problem exists in
3.0.13.  There has been a bug report #2521 which was closed although
there was still one report saying the bug still was there.
I have several reports of this same behaviour: creating of files work
but modify/delete doesn't.  Is it true the the directory in question
does not give write permission to the user account but only the
group the user belongs to?
