Do you really mean 1.1.4 ?

It's really quite usable, though if you upgrade a machine from XP
without an erase and clean install it's a total disaster. In particular
it leaves the file system permissions as a hopeless mess. As a clean
installed OS on new laptops, though, it's really very nice.

I can't reproduce the fault described above with the current release, so
I assume it's specific to the file, file name, etc. I have UAC enabled
(and don't understand what everybody whines about) so it's not a UAC issue.

Can we have some details? File name, directory name, directory
permissions, whether you can save files into that directory from other
programs, etc.
