I've just upgraded from build 17 to build 20.1 and am disappointed as to the
number of bugs introduced.

Try the following from bash or sh

touch newfile
chmod +w newfile
test -w newfile && echo OK
# no response
chmod -w newfile
test -w newfile && echo OK
#no response (as expected)

I'm running NT4 SP5.
