can't delete a file although permissions seem correct



Hi

I've encountered a weird situation where I can't delete a file:
(reproductile on rh9 and fc3, no selinux)

$ id
uid=500(marius) gid=500(marius) groups=500(marius)

mkdir d1
>d1/a.txt
chmod 571 d1
chmod 460 d1/*
ls -al d1/
total 12
dr-xrwx--x   2 marius marius 4096 Dec  8 15:01 .
drwxrwxrwt  17 root   root   4096 Dec  8 15:01 ..
-r--rw----   1 marius marius    0 Dec  8 15:01 a.txt

rm d1/a.txt
rm: remove write-protected regular empty file `d1/a.txt'? y
rm: cannot remove `d1/a.txt': Permission denied

The directory d2 has write permissions for my group, and file it's
writable by group. I belong to that group, why can't the file be
removed?

Thanks in advance for enlightenment
