    SubjectBug in the file attributes ?


    I just made a manipulation that disturbs me. So I'm asking whether it's a
    bug or a features.

    user> su
    root> echo "test" > test
    root> ls -l
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 5 Mar 29 19:14 test
    root> exit
    user> rm test
    rm: remove write-protected file `test'? y
    user> ls test
    ls: test: No such file or directory

    This is in the user home directory.
    Since the file is read only for the user, it should not be able to remove
    it. Moreover, the user can't write to test.
    So I think this is a bug.

    If NT is the answer, you didn't understand the question.
