Well that might provide an explanation of how things went pear-shaped. I
don't remember what the perms were but when I went checking, they were
NOT drwxrwxrwxt... Possibly I inadvertently borked that...which lead to
all of the other (self-inflicted!) pain. Dang, I hate it when that
Plus of coursee a minor typo error in my.cnf...NO SPACES ALLOWED BESIDE
THE '=' SIGN!....
Did I mention 'dang, I hate when that happens...'?
Interestingly, neither the laptop nor the desktop server have the sticky
bit set. The fileserver does however.
