host:~# mkdir /blah
host:~# cd /blah/
host:/blah# touch test
host:/blah# chgrp adm test
host:/blah# chmod 640 test
host:/blah# ls -l
total 0
-rw-r----- 1 root adm 0 2011-03-29 17:15 test
host:/blah# su - hobbit
hobbit at host:~$ cat /blah/test
cat: /blah/test: Permission denied

Looks like any file in any directory has the same problem....
