This looks like a potentially interesting solution, I'll take a look at it. Thanks for the comprehensive answer!

I use Swype and it's great, but for something that's a repetitive task that never changes it seems silly to type in the commands each time

@Paul have updated the question with the ls output.

@DanielAndersson that was it! I hadn't logged in again since adding myself to the group. Thanks!

ls -lad /home/username/downloads gives drwxrwx--- 38 username debian-transmission 4096 2012-04-19 11:39 /home/username/downloads, and ls -la /home/username/downloads/<a file in this folder that won't delete> gives ls: cannot open directory /home/username/downloads/<a file in this folder that won't delete>/: Permission denied (directory name changed, of course) Filesystem is ext4.

comment Thunderbird - show starred messages above thread pane?
Yep, and it also only shows for that folder (e.g. inbox). I sort my emails by client, so I'd like a way of displaying them permanently from all folders so I know what emails need attention.
