thanks for the pointer, read the section right now and it sounds valid 
... although I still wonder if I can avoid having users do that by 
setting ACLs?

Is it possible to allow them read/write "Daten/client[abc]" but not 
rename "Daten", for example?

It happened for the first time since over 16 yrs or so, to be fair ;-)
