Thanks Allan. I used SetFile to set the owner to TxMt on the files in
question (~/.alias ~/.bashrc ~/.profile ~/.inputrc ~/.screenrc) and it now

I still had a problem with .bashrc until I restarted TM. I guess it caches
the file info the first time you open the file? It's working now anyway.

Thanks again
