Subject: dpkg file modes problems

Package: dpkg

     Operating system:  Linux 2.0.27
         Distribution:  Debian 1.3.1r6 (Intel)
Not standard packages:  Use of bash-2.01 instead of debian's bash-2.0

Problem description:

When I use dpkg as root for product installation, database files are
written with -rw------- mode (because I have an umask of 077 for root).
The problem is that when I want to use dpkg -l, -S and -L as an ordinary
user to see informations about a package, there is an error.

Procedure to generate bug:
0-bach$ dpkg -l
dpkg: failed to open package info file `/var/lib/dpkg/status' for reading:
Permission denied


  I suggest that the database files which can be made public be written
with correct modes, whatever the umask is.

Best Regards.
