Now we're getting somewhere,  /tmp has drwxrwxrwx privs and I can create
files and directories, but I can not use chmod or chown:
Administrator(at)CDMKNOWACZYT30 /tmp
$ chmod 777 XWin.log
chmod: changing permissions of `XWin.log': Invalid argument

so I have no clue how I can be logged in as Administrator and not be able
to change access privs :-/

I've checked the permissions on the /tmp directory and all seems fine.
Any ideas?
