Thanks Larry. I was untarring to a subdir below root. I can check the
tar archive, but I doubt it has a bash file w/"000" perms, even if it
did I would expect that to end up below the sub-dir; this problem may
have nothing to do w/tar- I was also fixing up perms in that subdir tree
piping the already saved tar STDERR to a series of commands, and finally
to "xargs chmod u+rw". I'm content to let this thread die ( I know I'm
not supplying enough info ). If I unravel it I'll report back.
