You changed the umask for when a shell is invoked, but did you change
the umask option in the sshd config file? Give that a try.

We have a handful of people that make changes to the web site using Macromedia Contribute. Recently I've noticed that the perms get mangled when people publish their changes. When I first encountered this I changed the set GUID to keep the group constant and changed the /etc/profile.local to have umask 002, so new files have the correct group and rw-rw-r perms. This appears to work just fine if the user were to SSH to the machine and create/modify the files this way. Since, I do not allow them SSH access to the box or FTP, they create/modify files using contribute (using SCP or SFTP to publish the files) or using winSCP. When they do this the file perms are set to rw-r--r. So, I then have to go back on fix perms every time a document is published.

I assume it has something to do with contribute or winSCP not following the umask. What can I do to fix this problem? Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
