Summary: time-conf sets incorrect permissions on /etc/localtime

This bug was reported to the Debian BTS.
"The script /usr/share/setup-tool-backends/scripts/time-conf does not
properly set the permissions of /etc/localtime when creating it in
&time_set_rh62_zone. Instead, it follows the umask of the process.
This is easy to reproduce with time-admin from gnome-system-tools:
$ ( umask 077 ; time-admin )
Change the timezone in time-admin and notice how /etc/localtime is now
owned by root and mode 600, making it useless for the rest of the
users on the system. Other files like /etc/ntp.conf might be affected
too, but I haven't checked."
