[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#683765: default umask gets overidden

Package: xfce4

this is in debian stable (squeeze).

Something in the desktop environment sets the default umask
to an explicit value (0022), instead of leaving it as set according
to the system's default settings.

 (The default umask is set with pam_umask according to http://wiki.debian.org/DebianDesktopHowTo)

Executed in an xfce-terminal or xterm:
~$ umask

while a text console gives a correct:
~$ umask
(as set by pam_umask.so usergroups)
