Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2005-07-22 05:37:50 EDT
This is working as documented:

       A combination of the letters ‘ugoa’ controls which users’ access to the
       file  will  be  changed:  the  user who owns it (u), other users in the
       file’s group (g), other users not in the file’s group (o), or all users
       (a).   If  none of these are given, the effect is as if ‘a’ were given,
       *but bits that are set in the umask are not affected*.
