Interestingly, if I turn off 'inherit permissions', then 'inherit
owner' DOES take effect correctly. However, that means the sticky
does not get inherited, which will not work for me. I need both to
inherited, and for some reason they are behaving mutually-exclusive
(with 'inherit permissions' taking precedence).
If I understood your problem correctly, you don't actually want to set
sticky bit on the root directory, but suid - so the chmod would be
chmod 4xxx mydir
In FreeBSD suid-bitted directory will make all the subdirs to inherit
Sticky bit causes bit different behaviour - see sticky (8) and
