Subject [users@httpd] Directory permissions

Maybe not a "pure" Apache question, but...

Using Apache 2.2.17 and Perl 5.10.0, a script [1] uses a temp directory for 
read/write.  When the directory is 755, the script can read but fails to 
write a new temp file -- secondary result Apache outputs a *text* file for 
*download* containing the desired html, rather than a "normal" html page.

chmod-ing the temp directory to 777 gives the desired, fully functional 
result.  I have not been able to find any documentation (either Apache or 
Perl) on this subject.

Between the two sys-admins for this system, we have never seen Apache 
bundle html into a text file and are scratching our heads as to why this 
happens.  Thoughts anyone?

Thanks - Paul
