Description Vishal Pakolu 2019-12-02 05:09:37 UTC
Description of problem:
Nautilus does not respect umask settings.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: 
Not always reproducible, is reproducible on few systems and not on few.

Steps to Reproduce:
$ umask
$ touch a
$ ls -l
total 1
-rw-rw-r--. 1 user user 0 Sep 27 10:26 a

$ nautilus <------ created a empty file here in same directory and nautilus started from same cli.
$ ls -l
total 11
-rw-rw-r--. 1 user user 0 Sep 27 10:26 a
-rw-r--r--. 1 user user 8295 Apr 30 2018 New Document.odt

Actual results:
Permissions of both the files generated from cli and from nautilus are not same.

Expected results:
Permissions of both the files generated from cli and from nautilus should be same, as set by umask setting.

Additional info:
The reason why it seemingly works in some cases is maybe because
the new files are just copies of ~/Templates files and it is possible
that those template files have different permissions on different
systems for some reason.
