PE sees kernel settings file as read-only after install

I installed hrev32991 from iso to virtual disk in VirtualBox 3.0.4. Attempted to edit ~/config/settings/kernel/drivers/kernel with PE but, PE threw up an error saying that the file is read-only. File is editable with StyledEdit.

I've seen many cases where StyledEdit would allow editing of files that Pe said were read-only. This happens quite a bit when porting apps and needing to edit configure scripts. In Pe there is a graphical button showing a pencil, if it thinks the file is read-only that button will show a red X on it. Click that button and now you should be able to edit the file.

Ok. I see the red line through pencil in the attached pic. However, I had a tracker window open that also had permissions attribute column showing. The permissions on the kernel file are -rw-r--r--, so why does Pe think the file is read-only for the user?

I've not experienced this issue when using a vmdk image, though I've only been testing the iso images lately. Will test later.

(For those who just get the emails, there is a picture attached. I should have mentioned it in the initial ticket description.)

This issue is solved by hrev33066.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

It was due to the wrong user/group ids fixed in hrev33066, merged to alpha branch in hrev33067.
