Aw, hell.  Forgot to mention that the kernel needs to be patched if you're
using a 2.0 kernel :-(  The problem is that the 2.0 kernels don't return
the correct error if you call lchown() (which is unsupported in stock 2.0

Seeing as how I have always run 2.1 kernels on the Alpha, I should've
remembered that, but didn't.  I sorry :-(

I'll dig up the kernel patch and post it for you.
