Point taken, my mistake so here it is rephrased.

The prog manual states that when you create an object its flags are set to 
that of its parent.. on a MOO I'm working on it does not.
For example,
Flags of #1:  r f
@create #1 called test  => #100
Flags of #100:  <blank, zip>

why? I ain't seen anything explaining this, judging by the earlier response 
it is probably a seting somewhere.. so any help would be appriciated.
