I'm using -[NSFileManager changeFileAttributes:atPath:] to change a file's
user ID, group ID, and POSIX permissions. On my 10.5.6 machine, this works
flawlessly, but on my 10.4.11 machine the group ID
(NSFileGroupOwnerAccountID) does not change. It's the same executable,
running as root in both cases.

I haven't had a chance to do extensive testing yet, but want to put the
question out there: why might this happen?

How are you creating the NSFileManager? +[NSFileManager
defaultManager] or alloc/init?
