Cannot change file ownership

Hi,

when using WinSCP to connect to a Solaris 8 system (as root), I cannot change any file ownership to, say, the user which Apache is supposed to use (see example below). Those fields in the GUI are grayed out. However, when connecting directly via SSH, I can use chown to set the file ownership without problems. I tried this with version 3.5.6 (Build 213) as well as version 3.7.1.
I am not sure what exactly it is that causes this behavior, but as it works in a terminal, I tend to assume that it's a WinSCP thing. Any hints?
