    Unfortunately, I don't think the 'local linux' version allows the
setUID functionality to work on directories.

	SetGID and allowing the propagation of the GID _does_ work.

I'd guess on the reasoning: on any linux I've run on, users can't give
away files to other users.   Allowing this 'bit' to work would effectively
do the same thing.
