Workarounds?  You might try removing yourself from Administrators group.
This may do the trick.  Alternatively, you can change your umask so that 
write permision is given to everyone.  That should solve it too.  

Fixing the bug in the source is also possible.  I know Corinna has been 
doing some work with making permissions track more closely with UNIX style.
I'm not sure whether his changes will help in this arena...
