Public bug reported:

I have an ISO archive and opened it with file-roller. Then I clicked the
big [Extract] button, selected my Desktop as target directory (options
"Extract: All files" and "Actions: Keep directory structure" checked)
and confirmed. It extracted the files successfully, but also changed the
permissions of the target directory itself (to r-xr-xr-x).

This is not expected and not intended. Actually I could no longer create
or delete files in my Desktop directory after that, until I fixed the
permissions again. I confirmed the behaviour with a different location
as well.

Extracting anything into a location should never modify permissions of
the target location itself!

If you're interested, here's what I did (extracting to ~/Desktop/testdir
; the "Extract" dialog window can be seen at
https://i.stack.imgur.com/rlUvS.png):

$ ls -l Desktop/
total 4

$ file-roller test.iso

$ ls -l Desktop/
