It appeared to work, I changed the directory permissions to 755.

Depending on the platform and your security model, you may need the SGID
bit set on the directories to get newly-created files to inherit their
group id from the parent directory instead of getting it from the
current user.

You are right, I didn't notice because I am the only user :-)
Now I have the directories at permissions 2775.
What still bugs me is that I have no clue how the permissions got garbled the way they did.

Kind regards,
