I assume you've created the child folder (under that folder) in Explorer,
and of course it inherited those permissions. I haven't dwelved into the new
IIS 2008 R2 permissions, but it is possible the AppPool permissions may have
a built-in protection somewhere to even disallow certain permissions
considering it may be a web-based security protection mechanism for anyone
coming in as admin to stop any possibly attempt at control. Therefore,
curious, if you removed the AppPool permissions and create another folder,
does the same thing happen?
