[Chicago-talk] CGI umask

ok, this is driving me batty.

I am calling this inside a module called from a CGI in apache:

	my $old_mask = umask 000;
        mkdir ($gallery_base_dsk . "$gallery_name/thumbnails", 0777);
        umask $old_mask;

hoping to get a 777 directory out of this.

Instead, when I ls -ld, I get this:
drwxr-xr-x    2 apache   apache       4096 Mar  2 20:59

what gives?
