I think i understand this daemon stuff.

I cant reproduce this bug. I must have met a rare race condition. I am
not using any session manager. My window manager (awesome) is started
from .xsession, where umask is not set, and i am not starting any

I thought at first that launching thunar from a keyboard shortcut,
provided by my wm, was responsible for this, but i've just check with a
clean new X session, and it is not the case. new instances of thunar are
respecting my umask.

But then i have some pretty uncommon / personnalized desktop
environment, so we shouldnot spend too much time on this bug

Sorry for the report,
