  Extracting iso changes target directory's permissions

Status in file-roller package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  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

  $ ls -l Desktop/
  total 4
  drwxrwxr-x  2 bytecommander bytecommander 4096 Sep 22 21:58 testdir/

  $ file-roller test.iso

  $ ls -l Desktop/
  total 4
  dr-xr-xr-x  4 bytecommander bytecommander 4096 Sep 22 16:20 testdir/
