	It's in Windows XP -- their are only two entries in the
Security Tab -- me and 'SYSTEM'.  It had me s owner, but with no
access, so that fixes the access error I was also getting, BUT
the group is still unset.

cacls shows:
C:\home\law\Application Data\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects
    NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM:(OI)(CI)F "NT AUTHORITY", not considered a 'local' system account maybe?
Otherwise, shouldn't it show SYSTEM as the group?

But SYSTEM as a group shows '18' in my /etc/group file, not "-1"
Seems like some of these files (perhaps the installer is trying to use
the the TrustedInstaller Credentials you mention, but since this is an
XP machine, it doesn't exist?  Uh...weird.
