transmission-daemon auto chmod
I have transmission-daemon configured to download to a directory, TORRENTS, inside another directory, torrents (case sensitive of course ). TORRENTS is actually a symlink to a folder called torrents on another hard drive, but I don't think that's relevant.
The problem is that whenever the daemon is started, after a certain length of time I find that everything in the torrents folders (and the folders themselves) are chmodded 777 (world-writable) - obviously, a situation I would rather avoid.
The umask in transmission-daemon's settings.json file is on 23. I heard it uses decimal notation (as opposed to octal), so I converted 027(oct) [rwxr-x---] to 23(dec). Maybe something's wrong there?
