I'm having a problem with Mandrake 8.1 where the permissions on directories inside /home change automatially. For example:
jobs is owner=ernie, group=production, owner=rwx, group=rwx, others=r--
If I look again in about 30 min the permissions have changed to:
owner=rwx, group=r-x, other=r--
The directories in question are used as Samba shares. Everything has run okay for about 2 years and this problem cropped up when I upgraded hardware and installed Mandrake 8.1 to replace 8.0. The Samba config file has remained the same.
