I know. I meant manipulate in the sense of
handling something with dexterity and finesse. -- which
is a different connotation or sense of the word than when
talking about one person manipulating another.
How would _you_ create these symptoms if you don't know
how they got that way -- just that they exist that way.
Furthermore. I'm pretty sure that a person would not
be able to create that symptom with icacls (or the deprecated cacls).
I would not doubt that icacls would refuse to create
mis-ordered ACL's, for example. I.e. its likely a non-windows
program or odd interaction between one and windows.
That's why I pointed out that besides cygwin creating acl's that
explorer will complain about, the roaming profile has also received
profiles from a samba server on linux (with a different permission
structure).. Its unclear what permissions are copied then and how
they are mapped.
