This works fine for me....

control:

   actionsequence = ( files )

files:

 /iu/nexus/ud/mark/comp/Tests/dir1
r=inf
owner=www
mode=640
group=uucp
action=fixall


Checking file(s) in /iu/nexus/ud/mark/comp/Tests/dir1
cfengine:nexus: Skipping ignored directory /iu/nexus/ud/mark/comp/Tests/dir1
cfengine:nexus: /iu/nexus/ud/mark/comp/Tests/dir1 had permission 700, changed 
it to 750
cfengine:nexus: /iu/nexus/ud/mark/comp/Tests/dir1/dir2 had permission 700, 
changed it to 750
cfengine:nexus: /iu/nexus/ud/mark/comp/Tests/dir1/dir2/y had permission 600, 
changed it to 640
cfengine:nexus: /iu/nexus/ud/mark/comp/Tests/dir1/x had permission 600, changed 
it to 640
