'sudo chown root file.txt' is inconsistent in leading to a "permission denied" output
I tried to 'sudo chown root' a file, and double-clicking it resulted in a "permission denied" output. I tried it again with another file, but this time nothing happened. I could click and open the file as if I had never issued the command.
A related problem is when I issue this command at directories. It takes on the x on the folder in nautilus, but I can open the directory without getting the "permission denied" warning. I don't want the directory to be openable from nautilus at all, and I'd like it to require the root password if access is attempted through terminal.
Thanks very much
