Re: MacOSX 10.0.X Permissions uncorrectly set

Same here - /Users/stereo/Desktop is chmod 700 on OSX 10.0.4, both Server and "Standalone". The template for new user directories is stored at: /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Admin.framework/Resources/English.lproj/ user.gnutar. You might want to check if the template's permissions are set correctly.

Hope this helps :)

Fix: chmod 755 or chmod 750 /Users/yourname/Desktop

Apple have been warned long ago and as of 10.0.4 it is stil not fixed.

Odd.. mine is set to mode 700.  And I'm quite sure I didn't chmod it
myself.  Tested on a 10.0.4 system (but I installed 10.0.4 today, and
the times reported by ls -l for both . and ./Desktop are to initial
install/10.0.3 update era).  So there's something more to it - perhaps
a different configuration setting someplace? Maybe it's because I installed
10.0 on top of a 9.1 system that had folder sharing turned off?  I don't
