I issued the command

sudo chmod 700 <directoryname>

in the hopes of getting the permissions for that directory to look like drwx------

Instead, they look like drwx--S---

Why does this happen and how do I go about removing the S?

    @jasonwryan: I don't think this is a dupe; exeleon is concerned about the fact chmoding didn't remove the S, and I'm with them on that one. – tink Feb 2 '15 at 2:00
