WTF?
Who thought it was a good idea for the Red Hat desktop network configuration tool to remove read access for 'other' on files like /etc/hosts and /etc/resolv.conf - especially since doing that breaks name resolution for userspace?! I just wasted a fair bit of time trying to figure out why I couldn't resolve anything anymore.

They might be inheriting your shell umask.
Regardless, that is a bug and it should be reported.
