Applying privildges to enclosed items

When I take the option to "Apply to enclosed items" after I edit the "Sharing and Permissions" in the Info window, the Finder shows the message, "Applying privileges to xxxxx" until the task is completed. Path Finder does not display the message. It also fails to apply privileges to the enclosed items.

    Hi Ryoichi.

    Sometimes flags in PF's Get Info window don't stick (this is rare and I can't reproduce it on a stable pattern) or maybe they stick but the visual mark doesn't refresh properly.
    Anyway, I just did a test and privileges were applied to enclosed items.
    If it fails again try to

    a) relaunch Path Finder and check the permissions again to see if the privileges are refreshed or
    b) apply to enclosed items a second time

    Please report back if you can reproduce the failing behavior on a steady pattern.
