    SubjectRe: ext2 attribute immutable

    I've discovered yesterday taht setting an inode (you might call that
    file) immutable prevents me from moving it. Usually UN*X attributes
    affect the inode only. Is that intentional?

    This is intentional. Otherwise, even if someone made /etc/passwd
    immutable, you could bypass the security by moving /etc/passwd out of
    the way and creating a new, modified file.
