Actually I don't even get why they switch to 0600 instead of 0700.

No, I didn't. I just did these operations consecutively.

Actually I verified the status of the backup (I rsync those folders
preserving the rights) and I don't have the same issue with those.

It seems that I have inconsistency in the home folder and I don't
understand why. Disk issue ? Too many reinstalls using the same home
with a different filesystem (I kind of tried squeeze, wheezy, ubuntu and
maybe even Jessie I don't remember, with the same home filesystem) ?

I guess I will have to format the disk, even recreate the dos table
maybe, and try to recopy the files on it to see if it does the trick.

Thank you anyway, I mostly wanted a confirmation before getting into
that. ;)
