You didn't specify an owner when you ran the @property command.  It thus
created a "rc" property on this object -- owned by the owner of the
object.  This is why you could not edit it; permissions on the property
are distinct from permissions on the object.

+w is a bad bad way to deal with shared code.  In particular, don't EVER
make a verb +w unless you don't really care about your MOOing
experience. :-)
