10.4: Use Access Control Lists for fine-grained control
Authored by: kaih on May 07, '05 06:14:12AM

This sounds strange to me - iTunes (or any other app for that matter) shouldn't look at unix permissions as such, it should ask the kernel "do I have access to this file?" and the kernel will consult the ACLs (if there are any) and then the unixperms and simply reply "yes" or "no"
Have you enabled ACLs on the volume, as detailed in one of the top comments? (I forgot to include this in my hint! d'oh!)

Cheers,
Kai
