           Summary: PDF files saved with incorrect group id (gid)
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 522+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: New Bugs
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: brian.aydemir at gmail.com

When following a link to a PDF, the file is displayed in the browser window. 
At this point, one may use Cmd-S to save the PDF file to some location on disk.
 The file created has an incorrect gid, in the sense that the gid does not
correspond in any way to the current user.  In my particular case, the current
user can't even normally create a file with the observed gid, so it's not clear
how the group id is being set.

Steps to reproduce (I'm picking a particular PDF, for the sake of
illustration---I've observed similar behavior with other PDF files, so the PDF
itself shouldn't matter):

[1] Open http://www.cis.upenn.edu/~baydemir/files/abw06nominal.pdf in a browser
window.  The PDF should display normally.

[2] Choose "File > Save as..." and save the PDF file to some location disk.

[3] Now examine the group id (gid) of the file.

In my particular case, I saved the file as "abw06nominal.pdf" to ~/Desktop. 
Cutting and pasting from Terminal.app:

% id
uid=502(kitby) gid=502(kitby) groups=502(kitby)
% groups
% ls -l
total 312
-rw-r--r--   1 kitby  wheel  159578 Apr 11 11:00 abw06nominal.pdf

The group "wheel" makes no sense for the file I just saved.  By default, files
I create should fall in group "kitby".  I'm not a member of "wheel", so it's
not clear how I caused the creation of a file with group "wheel".
