I don't see any place to set who this is from so for future reference

In atleast 5.97 chown now works on the target of a symlink rather than a
symlink.  This has NEVER been the case with any version of chown.  This leads
to unexpected results on GNU systems as even on GNU systems chown hasn't
functioned like this.  Bug was discovered in Debian coreutils 5.97-5.3,
marked and reported as such by myself.
