Problem with Root and untaring/install permissions
 
This is has me confused :confused:

My problem is that when I go to untar a file, or run make install, as root (and only root) the file permissions change to a different number, and nothing is ever the same. This is a huge problem for me, as this shows here:

-rw------- 1 root root 4432926 Nov 23 17:18 gimp-data-extras-1.2.0.tar.bz2
-rw--
