The umask one never hit me on Unix (I tried Linux & Solaris as non-root).
Looking at it, I wonder if we should fiddle with umask at all, or just
remove the setting of umask.

The "warn if we're not root" one - probably makes only sense on Windows
based systems, and should probably be #ifdef'ed as such. (Your patch looks
ok, dunno if we'll encounter the same thing on cygwin).
