Ok, after some experiments I have found that the above problem appears ONLY if 
the "read from others" permission is set to _not_ granted; i.e. for lilo.conf 
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 4323 2005-03-25 21:00 /etc/lilo.conf
works correctly; _but_ :
-rw-r-----  1 root root 4323 2005-03-25 21:00 /etc/lilo.conf
is regarded as "read-only" by the file manager in super user mode.
It appears to be quite an akward bug which would be annoying to have in sarge! 
Is it only me experiencing this ?!
