Description Christer Matson 2003-09-05 06:46:58 UTC
When editing text file on Samba 3 PDC, from NT4 client. I have only read rights
as group member (on linux fs), only owner has write access. My text editor in NT
is TextPad. If I edit the file and try to save, it is corrctly refused as I
don't have write access. But if I select Save As, and try to save the file under
it's original file name, the original file gets deleted while I still get the
message that I don't have sufficient rights to the file.

Apparently the original file gets deleted before the rights are checked when
doing save as. Seems quite serious to me!

I have tested this with current Samba 3 CVS and cannot
repeat. I am using a directory set to be writable by
the logged in user, and a file that is readable only
be the logged in user. Both notepad and wordpad to
the correct thing (save as leaves the original file
alone). I am using NT4SP6.

I am setting this to "worksforme" unless the original
reporter can come up with an exact way to reproduce this.
