Re: editfiles messing up file permissions?

I just upgraded to 1.6.1 and I see this same behavior. Anytime it edits a
file, it messes with the file ownership/permissions. It always sets them
to 600. This isn't correct, also the "Umask" option on the editfiles also
gives me the same "Unknown action" error.

I'm pretty sure this is a bug. I'm running on Solaris 2.6 on a Sparc station.

Any ideas???
