YA broken FS?  What is that remote filesystem exactly?  What does

  /usr/lib/csih/getVolInfo /h

print?  What are the permissions (cacls, attrib) on the file `t'?

Or, if it's a share from another Windows machine, is it shared with
"Change" rights rather than "Full Control"?  That's just a shot in the
dark, though.  I can't reproduce that problem when using the "noacl"
