i think so.  when you come from the 36, files are created and deleted
with great regularity.  the 36 didn't have any 'ownership' items to deal

one way to get around it, until you get things worked out, is to change
the default public authority to *all, and then do a grtobjaut for all
the files in qs36f to give them public *all authority.  

this will simulate the way the 36 worked.  when you get a handle on the
bldfiles and the deletes, you can then go in and undo it.
