Description Ken Taylor 2011-02-02 14:03:20 UTC
I had filed this bug on which was perhaps not the correct place. I am moving it here and closing the bug on launchpad.

gnome commander running on Ubuntu 10.04 is connected by ssh to a Ubuntu 10.04 server. On the server is a file which I have examined with ls -l

-rwxr--r-- 1 moe users 20 2010-12-12 12:17 moe.txt

As shown the owner is "moe" and the group "users".

If I examine the properties of the file in gnome commander by right clicking the file name and viewing properties and then looking at the Permissions tab I am shown that the owner is "root" and the group is "root". This is not correct.

Gnome commander does show the permissions of the file correctly when viewing files on a remote server over an ssh connection.
