Thanks for the response. I narrowed it down to a dreamweaver issue (????) . 
Users can create, modify, move, delete, do everything outside of dreamweaver 
with the same permissions and then as soon as they try and save something 
inside of Dreamweaver it bitches it can't creat the TMP file and delete both 
the TMP and the original file. So, looking up that route.
