I remember seeing something about this on the list awhile back,
but I haven't been able to find it in the archives.
I have a file that has somehow been commandeered by an undefined
group, and I can't seem to remove, move, or change its ownership:
leisure# ls -l fstobdf
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root 65535 29640 Oct 17 23:58 fstobdf
rm: remove `fstobdf', overriding mode 0755? y
rm: fstobdf: Operation not permitted
leisure# chown root.root fstobdf
chown: fstobdf: Operation not permitted
leisure# rm fstobdf
leisure# mv fstobdf fstobdf.1
mv: cannot move `fstobdf' to `fstobdf.1': Operation not permitted
I have no idea how the file's ownership got this way, or how to
remove it. I haven't tried going to single-user mode yet; I'm on
a remote connection to this box.
