There's a couple nifty little apps that may help. Be sure to use these ONLY if you are certain that the existing permission structure is wrong AND you are certain of what they should be. I have used them myself to fix some really buggy permissions problems successfully.

First you can try ACL Fix. This will strip the permissions from any file/folder that you please and hopefully will result in the "correct" default permissions in place. USE AT OWN RISK!!!

Secondly... try iRepair. This will let you set custom group/owner permissions to a file/folder. Again... USE AT OWN RISK!!!

Holler back if you try these and let us know how it worked out.
