acl permissions

i have the following setting with acl.

[xxx@xxx disk]$ setfacl -m u: ole :r--,g:testgroup:r-- fil.txt

[xxx@xxx disk]$ getfacl jalla
# file: jalla
# owner: james
# group: james
user: ole :r--

[xxx@xxx disk]$

-rw-rw-r-- 1 james james 44 Oct 25 21:09 fil.txt

With this settings i would guess that ole only have right to read the file, but when i login with ole i have access to write to the file, and when i write to it it say that its write protected, but i can save. And when i have saved the file, it changes the file ownership and group ownership to ole.

-rw-rw-r-- 1 ole ole 44 Oct 25 21:12 fil.txt

Why does this happen ? ole is not in the group testgroup either..


(i needed to have space between ther username ole because of the stupid smiles..):
