Yes. Still the open question remains: why is it being changed although
the "immutable" attriibute was set?

The OP says so, and we must believe that, but I've a hard time imagining
how that happens (whatever program is doing that, let's assume it is
root, would have first to explicitly revert that attribute).

Not that I'm proposing that as a permanent solution (see my other post
in this monster thread): rather as a debugging tool.
