2 (very old) bugs?

Hi everybody,

Is someone can confirm me that there are 2 bugs never fixed:

- first in the stat command. Only with the -x option. If you execute  
stat -x on /tmp or /usr/bin/passwd parameters for example, the  
numeric representation of mode is wrong. The "special" bits are  
always 0. No suid-bit, no sticky bit!

- Second. Because of a missing suid-bit on the newgrp command, this  
one is not really usable for users other than root.

Best regards,

Yannick Cadin
