That's right. However, there was already a call to chmod right after creating the file. Maybe this was added because of a portability problem. I don't know why.

Anyway, I did some more tests and finally solved the problem. Rather than suppressing the O_CREAT flag, I also added an O_TRUNK flag and this did the trick.

I commited the change.

Thanks for your answer :)
