I am not a Unix guru.
Could it be that your troubles stem from the problem described here


An excerpt from the summary (halfway down the page):

(just done chmod -R -N /data to delete the ACLs on the dir that were  
passed down from the root dir after I created it to actually give  
myself the access to the /data dir that the permission modes said I had)

Maybe a real unix guru can provide some enlightenment and give advice  
on a solution.
