The UOJ login does not have a home directory or a shell. You can't actually log in with that user id and get to a unix prompt. So no .profile for that user. I still don't get how umask could do this-- it only subtracts from the existing permissions, right? In this case I'm gaining world readable permission. (And I have only a vague grasp of how this all works, anyway.) I'll go ask on the HPUX newsgroup and see if I can find out where a default would be coming from.
