Thank you for clearing that up. I edited ~/.bachrc according to the Debain user manual and now the umask setting for every user shows correctly as

Code: Select all

umask 0002
However, the problem persisted across multiple logins and logouts. Eventually I rebooted the machine and at the next login the permissions were set correctly. I still have to figure out why my ~/.profile umask entry was not being obeyed but I will leave that for another day.
