Description Justin Maggard 2009-07-02 17:35:01 UTC
When using the streams_depot VFS module, the first time you add alternate data stream data to a file, the whole directory tree to that file is created in the .streams directory as the connected user.  This can lead to problems when another user adds stream data to a file, because all the parent directories are owned by the original user.  Jeremy's suggestion was to switch to root before writing the streams data.
