yeah, happened here too.
It's because the un*x version of cat has a multiuser license. You have to
register as root for the whole system:

7:36:40~ %sudo touch /bin/cat           alex@Aleph(p1)[770|1]Wed-27-01-1999
7:38:06~ %                              alex@Aleph(p1)[771|0]Wed-27-01-1999

works without a prob.
I guess it's to keep useres accidently paying for something the sysadmin is
