Description of problem:
if one sets a umask in /etc/profile, nautilus will respect this umask when
creating a new folder. However, when creating a new file, nautilus ignores the
umask and always creates with perms 0600

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

How reproducible:
100% of time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set a umask in /etc/profile (eg 000)
2. In nautilus, right click and select Create - Empty File

Actual results:
New file has mode 0600

Expected results:
