Interesting, I just tried this on my home system (FreeBSD 8.2-STABLE)
and it worked as intended. I did use the exact commands,
Use the -o option for ls (ls -lo) to check on the effect
of chflags and chmod.
Without eexamining this behaviour in more detail, how about
this approach? Unmount the former system disk and newfs it?
That should "solve" the problem. :-)
