Yes, this was mentioned on IRC last week and fixed in my development copy. It 
will be in 1.5.3.

1.5.2 does not work with RHEL4.

I think you want 90-94 on x86_64. I guess they do return -EPERM. The way that 
we are doing this for 1.5.2 is using special syntax allowed by the newer 

-a exit,always -F perm=a -F exit=-13

This tells the kernel to select any syscall that changes file attributes. We 
should probably add another line with -F exit=-1

Yep, I'll add a line.
