Perhaps, but as I said, I can't reproduce that.

Charles, did you check the permissions of the parent directory /tmp?
Is it possible that it still has permissions set so that it propagatess
them to files and subfolders? 

Could you repeat your test after calling

	chmod 700 /tmp
	chmod 1777 /tmp

? The problem is mostly the already existing ACL. As I
wrote in my mail `NTSEC users: Please test' on this list:

- `chmod 755' on a directory which already has 755 permissions.

    Will not work since `chmod' is so _clever_ to do nothing
    if the requested permissions are the same as the current
    permissions.
