It seems Vista's inheritance is broken. As you say, I had to allow my
own account full privileges of that folder even though Administrators
already have that permission AND I'm in the Administrators group!

I almost can't believe what I am seeing! What's the point of groups, if
people in those groups don't inherit the permissions from the group?!
The "Effective Permissions" tab even showed that I already had full
write permissions! Ridiculous. I hate Vista already and I've only been
using it about two hours.
