.netrc and FAT32

I noticed that if .netrc is on FAT32 mc shows the following and
always ask for the password:


~/.netrc file has not correct mode.
Remove password or correct mode.

It works fine with NTFS (where I can chmod 600).

C: is NTFS

G: is FAT32 (a backup partition containing amonth others

As a "workaround" I moved .netrc to NTFS and created a symlink
in $HOME. It worked.
