[biz.sco.opendesktop] mailbox permissions

I'm running ODT 1.1 with sendmail.  The permissions of the system mailbox
files in /usr/spool/mail are something like:

-rw-rw----  1 osvaldo   mail     0 May 22 08:30 osvaldo

Sometimes, out of the blue, the permissions get changed to 0600, i.e.:

-rw-------  1 osvaldo   mail     0 May 22 08:30 osvaldo

and when mail attempts to deliver a message, it fails silently. i.e. I see
in the uucp logs that the messages are received by my system but the messages
don't end up in my mailbox nor anywhere else.

Has anybody seen this?
