I checked it in mine, and it has owner 501, which by default is the first
user you install. In this case it is you, but actually I think it is
Gerben. On my system 501 is not a user and I have a different number
because I manually changed that to be the same as on our Unix systems. So
apparently i-Installer forgets to set the owner of these files.
