Given that my issue isn't occuring on any one particular file, it was hard 
to know which to check.  But I took a random sample of half a dozen files 
and saw that they all have Permissions 666 set.

I can't even check out a project when logged in as Thomas, let alone any 
individual file.

Any other ideas what / where else I can look?
