Re: UPG and the default umask

/etc/login.defs is not read when I login to openssh server and it has
"UseLogin" set to false. If I enable UseLogin then X11 forwarding
stops working [1]. To me it seems that login.defs can not be the only
place where umask is set.

[1] man sshd_config:

"Specifies whether login(1) is used for interactive login sessions.
The default is ``no''.  Note that login(1) is never used for remote
command execution. Note also, that if this is enabled, X11Forwarding
will be disabled because login(1) does not know how to handle xauth(1)
