Hello everybody, I got a big issue on a multi use system that uses
thunar as file manager.

The system and user umasks are set to 007 but when i create files and
folders with thunar it does not correspond to the given umask. Can
somebody duplicate this behavior and why is this and how can we fix this?

Kind regards,


$ umask
$ thunar -v
Thunar 0.9.0 (Xfce 4.4.2)
