I realize this is much more a Windows 7 problem than a LibreOffice problem,
but so was my last question :)

​It's not a "more W7 than LO" problem, it's a "W7 only" problem...​

It would seem to me that if I have Full Control permission, then the
Special Permission check box should be check-able (not grayed out), but
it's not check-able, and it is grayed out.  What am I missing?

​The NTFS rights management. You can have full control over a file, but
can't do everything. You can be the "administrator" user, and not have full
control. You can be the owner of a file, and still be unable to modify it.
You can give *all* rights to the "Everyone" virtual user, and still not be
able to access the file without an user account on the system.

The worst thing is, I'm not joking here, these things are real. The only
option as far as I know is to effectively give yourself extra rights either
through all the dialogs madness or with the "icacls" command line tool.
Both methods are overly tedious in my opinion, but that's just the way it
