filesystems - either from a removable media or a partition shared with a
Furthermore, there could be symlinks to such files so filesystem capability
should be detected somehow from the file itself.
Since recently I am unable to patch WoW since it started to call
SetFileSecurity on the program directory which is located on a FAT32
partition. Everything appears owned by root but with rwxrwxrwx access. Wine
tries to set ---rwx--- which is, to say the least, not commonly seen.
