I had ownership and permission changes when it was a directory file of some sort, like dynamic files. We stopped doing resizes as root, and that solved it. You may also want to fiddle with your umask. I didn't see it happen with files that resided in my current working directory, just the ones in subdirectories below it. At the time, I had a number of versions, and it was happening on 9.5, so the ticket was closed with the advice to upgrade to 10.x.

Subject: [UV] RESIZE sometimes changes permissions

Occasionally RESIZE changes the permissions on a file but usually it
Has anyone else seen this? Do you know the rules about it?  Is it a bug?
A twist of unix security I don't know about?

As root, I resized hundreds of files over the weekend, none owned by
root.  Most were fine,  but I had half a dozen or so where write
permissions were changed. Owner & group remained the same.

I saw this once before when before when changing &SAVEDLISTS& from
type-1 to -19.
