Re: release critical bugs, 51451 (premissions tempfile, ld.so.conf)

Does this syntax work? I don't see this bug for libc5, nor did I
get it for xaw3d*. I only got it for xaw95g.

Are you sure? It only creates problems when root has
rather strange umask settings.

OK, but I assume I need to do that in 4 packages. And I'm low 
on time for this type of `release critical' bugs (that probably also
were present in slink). If anyone wants to NMU my packages
(xaw95*, xaw3d*), then they are welcome.
