Bug#370348: use /etc/profile.d instead of modifying /etc/skel/.bash_profile and /etc/profile

I've tried in Lenny to add a file in /etc/profile.d/ to set the umask,
and this had no effect.  I also tried to output some text to see if
the script is executed, and see no sign of it.  I've also tried to
find any code using the content in /etc/profile.d/, without any luck.

This is the test setup:

  guest@localhost:~$ cat /etc/profile.d/debian-edu
  echo /etc/profile.d/debian-edu
  umask 002
  guest@localhost:~$ ls -l /etc/profile.d/debian-edu
  -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 42 13 juli 17:41 /etc/profile.d/debian-edu

What have I misunderstood?  How are the code fragments in
/etc/profile.d/ supposed to work?  All I want is to modify the default
umask. :/

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
