Bogus file is write protected message with Copy CLONE to shared directory

With a shared folder configured, try this:
> Echo hello >test1
> Protect test1 -WD
> Copy test1 test2 CLONE
> Copy test1 SHARE:test3 CLONE
SHARE:test3: file is write protected
The file did copy correctly to SHARE:test3 though, and its protection bits are ----r-e-.

The message is issued because it fails to update the creation date.

Fixed. File handle needed for changing datestamp (SetFileTime()) asked for file write permission when only attribute write permission was needed.

Thanks. Wonder why I didn't notice that before now. I normally use Directory Opus 4 for file-copying. Maybe Opus sets the new file date before its protection bits?
