For some reasons the problem recently reappeared in CVS Emacs:

The file /path/to/example on host bob is owned by
visiting it from another host as /ssh:address@hidden:/path/to/example
editing and saving leads to it being owned by root.root.

I have backup-by-copying set to t.

Any Ideas?

Known problem?
