This is creating directories with permissions drw-rw-rw-.
A linux user reports that when using "tar xvfz archivename" the
top-level directory is created but all other contents are rejected with
tar: <filename>: Cannot open: Permission denied
tar: <subdirectoryname>: Cannot mkdir: Permission denied
Suggestions are that the permissions should be drwxrwxrwx.
How do I achieve this? Do I need a better tar clone on my Windows box?
N.B. the user in question found he could extract from a zip archive OK,
so the answer isn't needed in a screaming hurry but if there's a quick
fix I can apply before my next release, that would be great.
