Description Douglas E. Warner 2009-01-12 13:10:22 EST
Version: f-spot-

When modifying files, the new files don't have my current umask (0002) and instead get created with a mode of 0620.  This is problematic for me as the files need to be accessible to the group in order to be accessed.

Forgot to mention that I found a similar bug reported against Mono in Ubuntu that was fixed late last year, but it seems like that was in Mono 1.2:

Hi Douglas,

I've tried to reproduce the problem on an F10 and F11 system (x86) but without success so far.

I did the following:

- start an xterm
- umask 0000
- f-spot
- edit a picture (e.g. use the Sepia Tone filter)
- check the newly created files - they should have 0666 as permission

So far the umask was always honored correctly.

Please can you provide some more information an/or do some tests?

1. Does it still happens on a fullly updated system?
2. Can you try whether it happens for you on a x86 (32bit) as well?
3. Try the attached test program:
- gmcs umask-test.cs
- umask 0000
- run the program - it will generate a file "umask-test.tmp":
mono ./umask-test.cs
- check the permissions of this file

Best regards,

Sorry, I'm not in a position to test this out any more.  Feel free to close.
