It has. But why on earth should it need to have access as it's group
as well. I don't think that should be required. Maybe it is indeed a
bug in the Apple file system but I truly think it is a subversion
problem. As now I won't be able to mix usage of a file:/// repostiory
which I could because I was a member of the group the dir was owned
by. But that is something I don't really care about in my situation.
