When method /su: or /sudo: is used to _create_ a file the file's
permission will be set to -rwxrwxrwx (777), that is, allow everything
for everyone. Obviously this is serious security bug. Steps to
reproduce:

 1. Start Emacs as a normal user:

        emacs -Q

 2. Create a file in a directory to which the user who launched this
    Emacs session doesn't have write access.

        C-x C-f /su::/root/test.txt

 3. Write some content to the file and save it with "C-x C-s".

 4. Check file's permissions. It has 777 permission bits:

        $ ls -l /root/test.txt
        -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 5 2009-06-29 17:58 /root/test.txt

For some reason, if I create similar file to the same user's home
directory who launched this Emacs session (/su::$HOME/test.txt) then it
gets 644 permissions (probably honoring umask settings).

It seems to work perfectly now. Huge thanks! I'm happy to close this
