commit 135b344eb6d742822aac5ea330feb79c33b5eee0
Author: Gregory W. Chicares <address@hidden>
Commit: Gregory W. Chicares <address@hidden>

    Diagnose and correct defective umask
    A too-restrictive corporate customization of umask has caused too many
    difficult-to-diagnose problems. Override it with the usual default value
    to prevent those problems. Complain whenever it is encountered, so that
    the offending file in /etc/ can be fixed.
