------- Additional Comments From kay.abendroth@raxion.net  2006-11-11 16:59 -------
To quote http://www.jguru.com/faq/view.jsp?EID=19558:
"The proper way on Unix machines to do this is to set the userMask to the
desired value. When JVM is run on Unix box it takes the file permissions from
the value of userMask."

This bug should be marked WONTFIX, since there's no way for log4j to set
non-fileowner-permissions, except calling external programs.

It's up to the host OS to setup these permissions. This should be mentioned in
the documentation.
