Indeed. Unfortunately (in this case) we had already disabled unix
extensions a while back when 10.6.8/10.7 came out and we started seeing
similar permission issues. I'm surprized that "force security mode"
wouldn't work. That actually sounds like a bug if that's the case. I
don't believe I ever actually tested it myself but we did pin that as
another possible solution at that time.
This seems to be a different but similar issue on some new machines with
10.8. I'm not yet sure if it's an OS issue or a application issue. So
far, I've only seen it when a user 'packages' a project from Adobe
InDesign. Many of the extra files in the 'package' (just a folder, not
an archive or anything) end up without group permissions which is a big
issue for them.
