Thanks Evan. This is what I assumed, but after some playing today, I had some odd happenings. I created a directory called "/test" that I granted *PUBLIC and myself RWX authority as well as all object authorities. Then I did a CPYTOSTMF into that directory. The authorities for me and *PUBLIC were copied, but for some odd reason QTMHHTTP also got *RX authority. Maybe this web this is trying to haunt me! :) I checked, at the root "/" has no authorities for QTMHHTTP. So I have no idea where that came from.
