server chmod'ing db file

I note that every time the server (a 1.7.8p4, ugh) checkpoints on a certain
MOO, it seems to chmod the file it's dumped to go+r.
Now, I don't think it's a Good Thing to have the db file o+r when it
potentially contains data that shouldn't be readable by every luser with
access to the server.
Why's the server do this, and is there a way I can stop this without
breaking things (and even better without hacking in the server code?)
The server's an HP 9000 running sysVr4, if that's relevant.
