    This is intentional. You can set the permissions to anything you want
    by making tar honor the umask setting -- without needing to run chmod
    after extracting.

    So either use the --no-same-permissions option of GNU tar, or simply
    don't run tar as root (then this option is on by default), which is a
    good idea anyway.
