I am running cfengine as root, and trying to create a special directory in everyone's home directory. But what I cannot figure out is how to get the ownership correct. Here is my config:

control:
  mountpattern = ( / )
  HomePattern = ( home )
  actionsequence = ( directories )

directories:
  home/.baz
    mode=700

So if my directory tree looks like this:
/home
/home/foo (owned by foo)
/home/bar (owned by bar)

I get:
/home
/home/foo (owned by foo)
/home/foo/.baz (owned by root)
/home/bar (owned by bar)
/home/bar/.baz (owned by root)

What I want is /home/foo/.razor to be owned by foo, not root.

Thanks,
