[GRASS-dev] Directory security/permission issue

While looking over my working dirs, today, I noticed that all of my
recent locations were created with 0777 permissions, instead of the
traditional 0755 mask. Temp directories are still created properly.
0777 is bad form and a potential security problem.
Is there a reason for the change I missed? A quick search through the
archives didn't turn up anything.
It seems to have come as an accidental result of the MINGW changes. The
offending code can be found in lib/gis/paths.c in G_mkdir().
This should be explained or corrected before 6.2.2 is released.
