Right. The problem is that I have multiple groups and don't have them  
isolated. Everybody had to have access to the main directory with rw  
privs (maybe x, I don't recall). It's been a while, and it's not a  
major concern for me, but I recall that it wasn't clear how to box  
off the separate projects so they could only access stuff within  
their project. I got mixed up who had to have privs in each place and  
just made them blanket (single group, multiple projects). This is a  
rare instance where I'd really like a GUI to set it up. I touch it so  
rarely that I never recall how to do it and spend a lot of time
