Thanks guys, the light bulb finally went off, need more sleep ;).....so here
is what I think happened, so I run buntu at home on some PC's and had set
the uid to one of my users (my wife) to 1000 for nfs stuff, which is the
defaul range for ubuntu uid's.  So when I downloaded the file and untar the
users must have had a uid of a 1000 which on my system equated to my wifes
uid...LOL, was too late and it never crossed my mind so when I saw the owner
and group as my wife that it was just a shared uid...8>) Thanks for the tips
