Hi Kurt,

christian mock <cm () coretec at> has reported[1] that Proc::Daemon, when
instructed to write a pid file, does that with a umask set to 0, so
the pid file ends up with world-writable permissions.

Upstream bugreport is at [2].

 [2] https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=91450
Axel Beckert has commited a patch to the Debian packaging[3] and
forwarded it to upstream.
