Hmmm.  This has something to do with setting of umask.  Mine is set to
022.  I was able to reproduce the problem intermittently with umask 066.
Is your umask 066?

But it's not consistent.  _sometimes_ the mode is preserved.  Has
anyone on the Lynx list observed this?  Can someone share some
understanding?  I put some trace printouts in LYBookmarks.c and
the "problem" vanished!
