Re: Forcing user's umask in GNOME

Of course. I commented all such calls to umask.
On the other side, bash's configuration should not interfere with
Nautilus at all by default, unless I misunderstood something.

Well, it is rather difficult to issue a grep on users' configuration but
there is no longer uncontrolled umask call anywhere in /etc left.

I check everything possible.

Could you be more explicit? I searched there, but did not see what could
interfere. I can see maybe pam_env could be used, but I'm not really
sure of how.
