Description Acar 2003-03-16 22:44:38 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
When the program "neat" is run from a user's account (GNOME Menu->System
Settings->Network) with a umask that doesn't allow readable by all permission,
the umask of the user is used for the updated /etc/hosts and /etc/resolv.conf files.

No matter what the umask of the user is, the files should have read permissions
by all.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.umask 0027
2.GNOME Menu->System Settings->Network (enter root password)
3.Change the hosts listing or the network parameters
4."ls -l /etc/hosts" (or /etc/resolv.conf) shows the file is not readable by all.

Actual Results:  "ls -l /etc/hosts" shows permissions as "-rw-r-----"

Expected Results:  ls -l /etc/hosts should show permissions as "-rw-r--r--"
