I also think that this is the wrong way to protect users from world 
readable files. The concerned user should know about the umask anyway. 
However it cost me half a day of work once to figure out that the way 
kmail stores attachments and not the attachment itself was causing an 
error [don't ask! =)].

I pleed for the patch to be applied to cvs-head, since I'd consider 
kmail's current umask behaviour as broken.
