Xsession doesn't use UMASK setting from /etc/login.defs


After a fresh sarge install, I'm having problems with umask settings. In
/etc/login.defs I set umask to 002, and that works for logging in on the
console or remote via ssh. However, if I use {g,x,k}dm I keep getting an
umask of 022, because Xsession is started by the display manager which
has a default umask of 022.

It seems that Xsession doesn't change the UMASK at all. Should it do so?
If not, which program should set the umask during a graphical login?
