Is this expected behaviour:
$ uname -a ; umask ; touch /tmp/foo ; ls -l /tmp/foo ; mkdir /tmp/bar ;
touch /tmp/bar/foo ; ls -l /tmp/bar/foo

-rw-r--r-- 1 OPAM+DRA OPAM+None 0 Mar 19 13:44 /tmp/foo
-rw-rw-r--+ 1 OPAM+DRA OPAM+None 0 Mar 19 13:44 /tmp/bar/foo
Why does the file /tmp/bar/foo get g+w when /tmp/foo doesn't - I'm not sure
what to look at on my system to diagnose what I may have inadvertently
tweaked. The directory itself is:
drwxr-xr-x+ 1 OPAM+DRA OPAM+None 0 Mar 19 13:44 /tmp/bar
