Package: konqueror
Version: 4:3.5.5a.dfsg.1-6
Severity: normal

I opened konsole and wrote with nano (and root privileges) a text file and saved it in /home/USER/text.txt.
ls -l /home/USER/text.txt gives -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 5...
Now If I login kde with "USER", go to HOME by system:/ and open that file (kate will open it) and try to modify it I discover that I can do it (and save it automatically changing the owner to "anuser")! 
If I do the same simply opening konqueror from the start menu or from /home/USER/ I can't modify that file. It seems that when I open system:/ I gain some kind of root privilege (and I did not enter any password)

short form: There is no bug around here.

A bit longer: when you have write access to a directory, you can always delete 
files in that dir, no matter what the rights on the files.
Most editors saves a temporary file, removes the original and moves the 
temporary file over to the original - and then tries to fix permissions.

so this is expected behaviour.

I'm not able to boot the IP terminale, how does it work?

You can never telnet to the login and from Flash NT or from the folder inside 
Excel 8.2 you neither should ever digit on a directory, nor must disable the
