*POSSIBLE BUG IN `rm' AND `chown'*

I don't know if what I'm about to say has been documented and remedied.

I have noticed that allthough a file which is owned by root and group root
and having permissions rw-r--r-- can be deleted by another user if it is
in his home directory by using rm -f !
I am using fileutils-4.0

I feel that this kind of behaviour is very contrary to common operation.
