Coda File System

spurious Permission denied offline on apparently working setup

I encountered the following strange behaviour 
in the last days, and I'd like to know if it 
is a bug with coda, or I got something wrong.

0) I'm online. My homes volume is there,
   Connected, I got a valid token

1) I am hoarding my home volume

2) At home I use my (expired) token -fromfile 
   to login.

3) All files are there. Fine.

4) Sometimes (and here's the problem)
   files in a directory are write protected,
   whereas other directories in the same volume 
   are not (Usually I copy the files to /home/user
   and copy them back when I get back to college).
   Those files were fine when I worked online.

What might cause this ? What can I do to examine the cause 
for this behaviour ? Does it make a difference
whether the files were hoarded by ma on console#1
or me as root ('cause I didn't want to walk over
to do the hoarding ...) ? I'd like to be prepared 
when this happens the next time.
