Yeah, mine is 022 as well. However, if running:
python -c "open('test.txt', 'w')"
results in a file with a umask of 644. Which is the same thing I get if
I run `touch test.txt` from the command line. As I said, I don't really
care that much if my messages are executable. However, it is strange
and something I've not seen before, either in my Python scripts or in
general Unix usage. Also, I thought a umask of 022 results in files
with 644 (666 - 022 = 644).
So I guess my question has another part: Are you guys seeing 755 umasks on
