Hi Andreas,

Well I use cp as is, without --perserve, so according to your answer to 
Mickael, source mode bits will be discarded.

"file" is a regular file. I just renamed my source test tree 
200402/P2220368.JPG in the fat32 usb dongle to something more generic believing 
it would be cleaner in a mailing-list.

Reading you Andreas, makes me understand I wrongly interpreted the sentence 
"acls are a superset of basic permissions" when I believed they were stronger 
than mode bits when it's time to set... mode bits. Don't matter, as automatic 
inheritance doesn't work for me as I hope, acls are not the tool I thought it 
was. Sorry for the noise.
