Hi. I noticed something with file handling. I dunno if it's normal
behaviour or not, but it seemed strange to me :
say you have two files, file1 and file2 in dir1 and dir2. If you do a 'cp
/dir1/file1 /dir2/file2', the 'new' file2 has the permissions, user and
group of the former file2 instead of those of file1.
Should this be changed ?
