- What exactly do you mean by "all permissions on a file are lost"?

- Can you show the 'getfacl' output on such a file, before and after?

- If permissions getting lost, did someone edit the file?

- Does it happen only on a special kind of files?

- etc.

Please give some more information on the issue.
