Yes, the directory "." is where index.php is. It belongs to the SSH/FTP  
account. If a file (attachment, wiki.d pagefile, or index) or a directory,  
created by PmWiki, doesn't have this same owner, then the FTP account may be  
unable to see, edit and delete this file or list the directory unless we add  
these permissions.

If it is possible for the SiteAnalizer to know it, we just might do it  
automatically in fixperms().
