But hundred of files are affected!
I have tried to read the info for some of the affected files:
For all of them, I get for owners :
everyone : personalized
Me : read and write
staff : read and write
everyone : read and write
I suspect the first "everyone" is the "everyone" of my MacBook Pro!
For EPS files, I get the same funny list of owners, but it does not
prevent rewriting on an existing file.

I have already done that. It seems that permissions have been repaired
for system files, but not for my files.
