Possible bug in setting Windows file permissions? (os.chmod() not working properly?)

Peter,

	os.chmod(file, 666) seems to work quite proficiently. It might be possible
that it is converted (as that is easy to do).

In any case, aren't these supposed to be meaningful only as octal
values?  So you'd need 0666?  I'm not actually going by the docs
here, just memory.  777 and 666 would be extremely weird parameters
to pass in otherwise (i.e. as decimal).
