[Digikam-users] Permission change when saving modified pictures

Hello there,

I am re-posting this issue because it has not been solved with the 0.9.3 

Whenever I save a changed image file with showfoto or image editor (F4) using 
digikam 0.9.3final under a different file name ("SAVE AS"), the permissions 
of the new file are rw- --- ---

Permissions of the original file, the directory, including standard 
permissions are ignored.

I use digikam with multiple users, which all should have access to modified 
pictures (rw- rw- r--). But whenever one saves a modified picture under a new 
filename, that newly saved image is only accessible for the owner.
How can I set image editor and showfoto to create new files with standard 
directory permissions.

Thanking you in advance


My config:

opensuse 10.3 factory install
KDE 3.5.8
digikam 0.9.3
ext3 on affected partition
