I keep my applications installed on the /opt directory that is owned

applications there i've added it to the root group and did:

chmod 775 /opt

This works fine. Still, every now and then and without me doing
another chmod i find that the /op directory has gone back to the
original permissions that are 755.
I first thought it was the guid setting so i disabled it, but still
the same happens.

Any idea what could be causing this ?

SuSEconfig permissions might do this or an update of the filesystem RPM
to which /opt belongs.

Consider to use /etc/permissions.local to adjust /opt to 0775.
