Description Brian Ryner 1999-04-30 20:40:24 EDT
The "Default permission" setting actually sets the umask
parameter (the inverse of the permissions).  Linuxconf
should either make it clear that it's the umask you are
specifying, or translate the mode given to the corresponding
umask.

Added Jacques to the CC line so that he can fix the bug

This should be fixed some time ago.
