>             Fix For: 3.3, 3.2.x
> DbmSession uses the default mode when creating the db file. As a result the 
> file is world readable, which may be undesirable where sensitive informaiton 
> is stored in the session. Currently the users are required to chmod the file 
> manually. This can be fixed by using the option mode argument when the file 
> is opened.
> Quoting from the python anydbm documentation:
> open(         filename[, flag[, mode]]
> The optional mode argument is the Unix mode of the file, used only when the 
> database has to be created. It defaults to octal 0666 (and will be modified 
> by the prevailing umask).
