Goal

DESCRIPTION: 
When starting the IIOP Server Listener (ISL) with the following options in the ubbconfig, the socket files:
ISL        SRVGRP=G_APPL   SRVID=100 SEQUENCE=200       RESTART=Y
           CLOPT="-A -o /var/opt/appl/ISL.out -e /var/opt/appl/ISL.err -- -n //host_name port_number -d /dev/t cp
-m 25 -M 40 -x 40 -T 30"

ISH.pipe is created with world writable permissions (not taking into account the umask set for the newly created files
on the machine).  For example, the file permissions on the newly created socket files are:
srwxrwxrwx  --  ISH.pipe.0.20.100

Instead, the expected permissions on these files are:
srwxr-x---  --  ISH.pipe.0.20.100

The problem exists on the HPUX Itanium boxes, with Tuxedo 9.1 and the umask set to 027.
  
CONFIGURATION:
Tuxedo 9.1
