Bug description:
  I have always set umask at ~/.profile and gnome-session would source
  this. But in Zesty, this isn't happening, and I can find no way to set
  a umask default of my choosing for the gnome-session.

  Creating a document using gedit always produces the default
  (unchangeable) permission represented by umask 022.

  If I adjust umask at ~/.bashrc, creating a document in nano or vi
  works to get a different umask. But Ubuntu users should be able to
  adjust umask for GTK3 apps (like gedit) as well.

  If there is a new way to set ~/.profile variables, the documentation
  needs to be updated to reflect this so people know how to set them.
