    The command
    $ umask ugo=rwx
    gives an error code 1 and does not change the umask.
    Other ways to try to set the umask with all bits on, using symbolic
    notation, fail too.
    Octal notation does work, though.

    [Describe the sequence of events that causes the problem
    to occur.]
    See above.

    The function parse_symbolic_mode in file builtins/umask.def
    uses -1 as error value and a complement of all bits to work on.
    Masking out the high bits with each complement operator would
    solve the problem.
