Cabal created permissions

Hi there,

another thing I hope is worth mentioning after Simon so gloriously 
solved my last problem in record time:

Now using Cabal 1.1.3, the permissions for globally installed packages 
go wrong. Even though I used umask 0000 for these procedures, the 
installed files had all no read permissons for no-roots. I think, this 
problem was not there with the cabal version shipped with ghc 6.4.1.

I could work around it by hand, but maybe others have the same issues?
