No, both my local machine and the server are running NTFS.

chmod is a *nix command. I'm running on Win2K. I'm not using cygwin or any
other sort of *nix emulation. This is all purely Win2K stuff. 

To set the permissions I right click on the file in Windows Explorer and
select Properties from the pop-up menu. I then select the Security tab. This
then shows a list of users or user groups that have permissions. For each
user/group you can either allow or deny permissions for Full Control,
Modify, Read & Execute, Read, and Write. There is also a check box to "Allow
inheritable permissions from parent to propagate to this object."

The default behaviour in Win2K is that no specific allow/denies are set and
all permissions are inherited from the parent. This is what I was getting
with 2.0.41a. This is exactly what I need since the root of by HD has got
Full Control allowed for 'Everyone'.

Now when I do a check-out the inherit check box is no longer ticked, and all
specific permissions are read/write only, not execute.

I understand that you have put these changes in for the users who are
running *nix systems or emulations, but it seems to have broken Windows
systems. Would it be possible to have an option to set the permissions to
'Inherit from parent' until this can be sorted out properly?

No, my default permissions are Full Control to Everybody. The problem is
that files checked out by 2.0.51 are *NOT* inheriting the parents
permissions, but are generating their own from somewhere.
