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.
